Pain medicine recalled by manufacturer

February 09, 2011

Qualitest Pharmaceuticals, a generic drug manufacturer, has recalled about 11,000 bottles of its hydrocodone with acetaminophen tablets.

The recall was announced February 5 after one bottle was found to be mislabeled, causing the medication to be identified as phenobarbital. As a result of the mix-up patients may unintentionally take hydrocodone and acetaminophen tablets, instead of the intended dose of phenobarbital.

Consumers who have affected product should stop using the product and contact Qualitest at 1-800-444-4011 for reimbursement. The lot number can be found on the side of the bottle.

The recall includes the following products: hydrocodone bitartrate and acetaminophen tablets, USP 10mg / 500mg, NDC 0603-3888-20, 60 count, lot numbers T150G10B, T120J10E and T023M10A. Phenobarbital tablets: USP 32.4 mg, NDC 0603-5166-32, 1000 count, lot numbers T150G10B, T120J10E and T023M10A.

These lots were distributed between Sept. 21 and Dec. 29, 2010, to wholesale and retail pharmacies nationwide (including Puerto Rico).
