Product Recall - Acetominophen

Acetominophen is a common over the counter pain reliever that is best known under the brand name of Tylenol. There are several generic versions available. The one that is made by the Perrigo Company has been recalled due to fragments of metal being found in the pills. These pills are sold at Safeway, Wal-Mart, CVS and many other retail stores.
Tylenol is not affected by this recall.

To check whether the pills bought are being recalled check the store list on the FDA Web site, http://www.fda.gov/oc/po/firmrecalls/perrigo/perrigocustlist.html,
and the batch list,
http://www.fda.gov/oc/po/firmrecalls/perrigo/perrigobatchlist.html.
The batch numbers appear on the container's label.

Consumers with questions can call Perrigo toll free at (877) 546-0454.

Hi there,

would you actually know under what name Tylenol or any of the generics go by in Europe?

I have been searching for it bt could not find anything at all.

Thank you!

Thomas -- It depends where you are in Europe. The most popular names for Tylenol in Europe are Paracetamol, Panadol and Efferalgan. You can also run across more bizarre variants, such as Alvedon, Benuron, Dafalgan, Depon, Doliprane, Gelocatil, Panodil, Paracet, Paralen, Perdolan and Pinex.

My advice would be to ask your pharmacist for acetaminophen or paracetamol. Both of these are derrived from the chemical names of the compound and your pharmacist should be able to recognize them.

It seems like there is a new product recall everyday. I am especially concerned about all the recalls on children's toys and household products. I set up a personal file that alerts me to all product recalls and it sends me a timely notice when one of my products has been recalled.
