The following health alert is from the FDA on January 8, 2012.

Novartis Consumer Health, Inc. (NCH) announced today that it is voluntarily recalling all lots of select bottle packaging configurations of Excedrin® and NoDoz® products with expiry dates of December 20, 2014 or earlier as well as Bufferin® and Gas-X Prevention® products with expiry dates of December 20, 2013 or earlier, in the United States. NCH is taking this action as a precautionary measure because the products may contain stray tablets, capsules, or caplets from other Novartis products, or contain broken or chipped tablets.
The affected product information is at www.fda.gov/downloads/Safety/Recalls/UCM286242.pdf.
Mixing of different products in the same bottle could result in consumers taking the incorrect product and receiving a higher or lower strength than intended or receiving an unintended ingredient. This could potentially result in overdose, interaction with other medications a consumer may be taking, or an allergic reaction if the consumer is allergic to the unintended ingredient. NCH is not aware of adverse events reported with the issues leading to the recall. Novartis Consumer Health Inc. is notifying its distributors and customers and is arranging for return of all recalled products. Wholesalers and retailers should stop distribution and return the affected product using Novartis Product Return information that is being provided to them. Consumers that have the product(s) being recalled should stop using the product(s) and contact the Novartis Consumer Relationship Center at 1-888-477-2403 (available Monday-Friday 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Eastern Time) for information on how to return the affected products and receive a full refund. For more detailed information, consumers should visit www.novartisOTC.com as of January 9, 2012. Consumers should contact their physician or healthcare provider if they have experienced any problems that may be related to taking or using these drug products.

The following egg allergy alert is from the FDA on January 6, 2012.

Bloch’s Best Inc doing business as Laromme of Monsey, NY is recalling Laromme brand Vanilla Rugelach in 14 oz. round containers because it may contain undeclared eggs. Laromme brand Vanilla Rugelach was distributed in retail stores throughout Massachusetts, Maryland, and New Jersey.

Consumers who purchased 14 oz. Laromme Vanilla Rugelach are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 845-352-8811 between 11:00am and 5pm, Monday to Friday.
