business news in context, analysis with attitude

The Washington Post reports that “Perrigo Co., the nation's largest maker of store-brand drugs for retailers such as CVS, Safeway and Food Lion, is recalling 11 million bottles of the painkiller acetaminophen after finding small metal particles in 200 caplets.”

No injuries have been reported by people have ingested the caplets, and the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) says there is little chance that anyone could suffer adverse affects from taking the recalled medicine.

It is not yet known how the private label acetaminophen may have become contaminated.
