NoDoz, Excedrin & More Recalled!!!
I receive a daily newsletter from Web MD and I’m glad because in today’s letter it warned of a recall for Gas-X, Bufferin, NoDoz & Excedrin. The products were recalled because they may contain opiates such as Morphine, Percocet and may be mixed with one another.
Also it states to look for broken or chipped pills, tablets, capsules or caplets.
All Bufferin products with expiration dates of Dec. 20, 2013, or earlier have been recalled. Brand names include Bufferin Extra Strength Tablets, Bufferin Low Dose Tablets, and Bufferin Regular Strength Tablets.
All Gas-X Prevention products with expiration dates of Dec. 20, 2013, or earlier have been recalled.
