Product Description

Each item was distributed and sold in its individual packaging.

Reason for Recall

Improperly storing medications and exposing them to temperatures higher or lower than recommended can cause the medication to break down and become less effective. In some cases, drugs can become toxic. In other products, spoilage may occur, and testing supplies may no longer function correctly.

Impacts

Consumers who purchase and utilize an affected batch of medications may experience a lack of symptom relief.  Additionally, some side effects could be extreme due to toxicity associated with the breakdown of the medication. Testing supplies may give inaccurate results, and some products may spoil.

Lot Information

Products associated with this recall were sold between June 1, 2023, and October 4, 2023.

Consumers should locate the package in which the product comes to compare SKU numbers with the chart below. If you find your SKU number on the chart below, your product is affected by the recall, and you will need to take additional steps to participate in recall procedures.
