Upsher-Smith Expands Recent Recall to Include: Amantadine, Amlodipine, Androxy, Baclofen, Bethanechol, and Oxybutynin
Upsher-Smith Laboratories, Inc. is voluntarily expanding its previously announced recall of Jantoven Warfarin Sodium, USP, 3 mg Tablets to include products that were packaged on the same packaging line between May 17, 2010 and November 17, 2010. The company is initiating this expanded recall as a precautionary measure because a single bottle labeled as Jantoven Warfarin Sodium, USP, 3mg Tablets was found to contain tablets at a higher, 10mg strength before it was dispensed.
The following products were added to the recall: Amandatine 100 mg
Amlodipine 5 mg
Androxy 10 mg
Baclofen 10 mg
Bethanechol 5 mg, 10 mg, and 25 mg
Oxybutynin 5 mg
The accidental substitution of a different medicine may lead to a change in the effectiveness or possible side effects from the medicines involved.
