Thanks to Amalia Goldvaser for bringing to my attention the following article in the New York Times -- 11 Million Bottles of Painkillers Are Recalled, by John Holusha:
As many as 11 million bottles of store-brand acetaminophen, the pain killer, were recalled by the manufacturer today because some of the caplets in the bottles are contaminated with metal fragments.
The manufacturer, Perrigo, said it discovered the metal bits during quality control checks. There have been no reports of injuries or illnesses cause by the problem, which affects bottles of various sizes containing 500-milligram caplets.
