Pin It

Hurley’s Marketplace has received notice that Novartis Consumer Health has recalled certain bottles of four of its over-the-counter medications – Excedrin, Bufferin, Gas-X and NoDoz – because they may contain stray pills or capsules from other Novartis products, or contain broken tablets.

Novartis has halted operations at the Lincoln, Neb. plant that manufactured the drugs “to accelerate maintenance and other improvement activities at the site,” according to a release from the company.

Novaritis is recalling all lots of NoDoz which expire on or before December 20, 2014 and all lots of Gas-X Prevention products which expire December 20, 2013 or earlier.

Additionally, 16 different Excedrin products that expire on or before Dec. 20, 2014 have been recalled, as well as three Bufferin products that expire on or before Dec. 20, 2013.

Complete information on the recalled products is available at – http://www.novartis-otc.com/otc/index.html

Hurley’s urges consumers that use these medications to compare expiration dates on bottles of these products they have recently purchased.

If products fall within these expiration dates, they should be disposed of or returned with proof of purchase for refund or replacement.
