Recall of Common Medications

Generic lots of atenolol and clopidogrel are under recall due to a label mix-up. Golden State Medical Supply has recalled bottles of atenolol, a blood pressure medicine, and clopidogrel, an anti-clotting medication, after finding that labels had been switched on some of the bottles. People with the recalled medicine should take their pills to the pharmacy or contact their prescriber. (Source: FOX13 Memphis, D. Lord. 10.3.22)

Candy-colored Drugs Seized

Fifteen-thousand, candy-colored pills placed in a LEGO box were actually the opioid painkiller fentanyl. Agents and officers found the box during a vehicle stop on the Manhattan side of the Lincoln tunnel in late September. This was the largest seizure of fentanyl pills in New York City with an estimated street value of $300,000. The multicolored pills look similar to party drugs, which drug traffickers hope will cultivate a new market among younger people. (Source: ABC7 New York, 10.4.22)
