Lipitor Bottles With Fake Pills Recalled

May 24, 2003|From Times Wire Reports

An estimated 100,000 bottles labeled as the cholesterol-lowering medicine Lipitor are being recalled because they contain counterfeit pills, the Food and Drug Administration warned.

The FDA said the fake pills were discovered after health complaints but would not elaborate because a criminal investigation is underway.

The recall covers original 90-pill bottles marked with the words "Repackaged by MED-PRO Inc., Lexington, Neb." The bottles bear lot numbers: 20722V, expiration 09-2004; 04132V, expiration 01-2004; and 16942V, expiration 09-2004.
