What a Pain!

CNN reported that there has been a recall of the pain reliever acetaminophen. The recall affects 11 million bottles containing varying quantities of 500-milligram acetaminophen caplets made by the Perrigo Co.

If you took a pain reliever today and want to know if you should head to the doctor,

Acetaminophen is best known as the drug in products sold under the Tylenol brand, but is widely available in typically less expensive generic versions. The drug, along with aspirin and ibuprofen, is one of the most widely used pain relievers available without a doctor's note.

Tylenol however, has been reported to not be affected.

The FDA has said that the contaminated pills have metal fragments ranging in size from "microdots" to portions of wire one-third of an inch long.

The FDA reassures us by letting us know that those who take any of the contaminated pills could suffer minor stomach discomfort or possible cuts to the mouth and throat, but serious injury is unlikely. Thanks for the heads up FDA but I'm still going check my cabinets.

You can check the FDA's Batch List (if you can figure it out) or the store list for a list of stores that possibly carried the recalled pain reliever.

Nothing cures a headache like ingesting a one-third of an inch portion of a wire.

you'd think that when it comes to medications, they'd be more careful. I am totally checking my drawer tonight.
