“Novartis is recalling 1,645 lots of its Excedrin, NoDoz, Bufferin and Gas-X medicines because the products could contain stray capsules or caplets from other products, or ‘contain broken or chipped tablets,’ ” the Wall Street Journal said.
Last month, Navartis shut down the plant where the products were manufactured. The plant also manufactured opioid pain killers including Percocet and an extended release type of morphine.
