Recall - Potential Presence of Foreign Tablets or Chipped or Broken Tablets or Gelcaps
FDA Novartis Press Release
January 8, 2012

Novartis Consumer Health Inc. is voluntarily recalling all lots of over-the-counter products Exedrin, Bufferin, Gas-X Prevention and NoDoz. Reports were received of chipped and broken pills and inconsistent bottle packaging clearance practices at the Lincoln, Nebraska facility, which could result in the bottles containing foreign tablets, caplets, or capsules.

Mixing of different products in the same bottle could result in consumers taking the incorrect product and receiving a higher or lower strength than intended or receiving an unintended ingredient. This could potentially result in overdose, interaction with other medications a consumer may be taking, or an allergic reaction if the consumer is allergic to the unintended ingredient.
