Recall: Generic Cholesterol Medication Pill Contains Glass

We have a warning this morning about a popular prescription drug and glass found in the pills.

3 to 4 million Americans rely on the generic version of the drug Lipitor to control their cholesterol.  The manufacturer of Ranbaxy has stopped all production of the drug this morning.

Ranbaxy can’t figure out how small glass particles, the size of a grain of sand, have gotten into its generic pills.

The contamination has not led to any patient problems but, consumers are being told to return the Ranbaxy pills and get another brand.
