A-S Medication Solutions, LLM Recalls Acetaminophen Extra Strength 500 MG Tablets Nationwide
WASHINGTON, DC – According to an online news report on foxbusiness.com, approximately 200,000 bottles of extra-strength acetaminophen sold under several brand names are being recalled nationwide because of a labeling error. According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), A-S Medication Solutions, LLM has initiated a voluntary recall of its 500 mg Acetaminophen Extra Strength tablets due to “an incomplete prescription drug label rather than the required Over the Counter (OTC) Drug Facts label.”
According to FOX Business, the representatives for A-S Medication Solutions, LLM did not respond to FOX Business’s request for comment or interview.
According to the Food and Drug Administration, Acetaminophen can be harmful if the user does not follow the OTC label safety warnings or the bottle’s safety instructions are incomplete. The label is required to include safety warnings about the possibility of “liver damage if consumers exceed the recommended dose, combine use with excessive consumption of alcohol” or if the user is “allergic to the active ingredient.”
The 100-count bottles of 500 mg Extra Strength Acetaminophen has a National Drug Code (NDC) of 50090-5350-0 and were packed inside white, plastic pill bottles inside of a clear plastic bag as part of Health Essentials Kits.
According to the FDA, the Health Essentials Kits, which contain additional seasonal products such as Halls cough drops, were “distributed by Humana to its members.”
The recalled bottles were “possibly” distributed throughout the United States between January 14, 2021, and March 15, 2021. The recalled medication has expiration dates of either July 31, 2022, or August 31, 2022.
ASM or its distributors are not aware of any “adverse events” linked to the recalled product. However, the ASM stated that the recalled bottles that are missing the “full OTC Drug Facts chart” should be returned for a full refund.
