What does this mean?

Since several reports of illnesses and injuries have already been received by the FDA relating to this recall, it is especially important to take this recall seriously.

If you are using DIGOXIN tablets, check your bottle to find out who it was made by. If your tablets are made by Actavis, Mylan, Bertek or UDL you should return them to your pharmacy urgently to examine and possibly exchange. If you are not sure who has made your tablets, please take your bottle to your pharmacist for them to check as soon as possible.
