Pfizer Once Again Expands Lipitor Recall
Lipitor is one of the leading cholesterol medications on the market, and even though its sales have been high for some time, its manufacturer, Pfizer, has encountered much in the way of negative publicity because of several different Lipitor recalls. Unfortunately for many people, yet another Lipitor recall has been announced, expanding upon the three previous Lipitor recalls that had already affected hundreds of thousands of bottles of this medication. Consumers are advised to exchange their affected vials for a new container.
This current Lipitor recall involves 19,000 bottles of the 40 milligram pills. The reason for this Lipitor recall is the same as the others - a smell emanates from the bottles that can cause nausea, diarrhea and other problems. Company officials believe that this smell is due once again to exposure to a fungus as the containers sit on pallets waiting to be shipped around the world. The company has also proclaimed that there is little if any danger involved with using these affected bottles of medication.
