Several Lots of Lipitor Recalled
Lipitor is a cholesterol drug that’s manufactured by the corporate giant that is Pfizer, and it’s believed to have generated almost $11 billion just last year, with several more billion in revenue generated since its approval for use in the United States by the FDA in 1996. Since then, Lipitor has been seen as largely effective in terms of its overall results, but over time many prescription drugs run into one problem or another. That seems to be what’s occurring with this successful medication, as Pfizer has announced a Lipitor recall that affects several lots of the drug sold in the United States.
Reason for the Lipitor Recall
Several lots of Lipitor have been recalled because of consumer complaints regarding a musty smell emanating from the containers of the medication. After investigating the claims, it was discovered that this smell is the result of lots of Lipitor being exposed to to 2, 4, 6 tribromoanisole, which is a pesticide used to treat wood pallets. To date, no one has been harmed as a result of exposure to these tainted lots, but this is the same substance and smell that led to a massive Johnson & Johnson Tylenol recall recently.
Lipitor Recall – American Lots Affected
There were seven lots overall affected by this Lipitor recall, and five of them were intended for use in the United States. This basically leads to over 190,000 bottles of Lipitor being recalled. These lots include:
These lots contain containers of 90-count Lipitor pills, and they have an expiration date of January 2013. Consumers who have one of these containers are advised to return it to the pharmacy.

Kathy Hudson and Donato Giovanatto. Continues to go above and beyond the call of duty. Reaching out to the insurance company about the damage to the vehicle. Forcing them to take responsibility.
Phillips law group has an amazing staff and i recommend them to everyone.
I tried a few previous law firms and none would take my car accident case with confidence they could get my anything. Phillips law group took my case and although it took around 4 years to get this case settled as I was in treatment, they never let up with insurance adjusters and they got me as much money as possible. They worked hard for me and advocated for me. Shoutout to key individuals who worked my case nonstop of the years, Robert Ross & Jasmine, you are AMAZING!
Liz Gonzales was great!!!!
Phillips Law Group has a proven track record of success. Juan Roque, in particular, is integral to that. He works with integrity, compassion, and an undefeated optimism that makes him a valuable asset.
Sophia H is a pleasure to work with! Thanks for all you do.
A friend of mine recommended Phillips Law and I’m so grateful, because they were so wonderful, so down to earth, so professional. I felt like they were family.
Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value As someone who is familiar with the inner workings of the auto insurance industry I can whole heartedly endorse Steven J. Jones and Phillips law group as someone I would want on my side should litigation take place. They handled my case professionally, honestly, and with satisfactory results which I would not have expected without enlisting their help.
My review is for Kathy Hudson a legal assistant at the law firm. She is great! She is very professional and a fair based person. She was never rude to me and always called me back. She listened to me and had my best interest as number 1. Mr Nasir who is a supervisor at law firm also was very professional and helpful. Not sure if spelling his name correctly but sorry if not. As far as mr Ross and the lady that runs the front desk reception I would say they are the most unprofessional and rude people I have met at a law firm in my life especially beings they were representing me. But Kathy made it overall a better experience. Thx Kathy.
