June 25, 1986

Cyanide was found in a bottle of Anacin-3 capsules during a random check of over-the-counter medications, Seattle officials said, warning consumers not to take any non-prescription medicine in capsule form. The tainted medication was taken from a store in suburban Auburn, police said. Containers of cyanide-tainted Extra-Strength Excedrin capsules were linked to two deaths earlier this month, but this is the first time the poison has been found in a capsule other than the Excedrin product in this latest cyanide-poisoning case. Meanwhile, the FBI confirmed the presence of cyanide in two bottles of Extra-Strength Excedrin taken to Washington for testing last week.
