Some Endocet Recalled For Having Double The Acetaminophen

Bottles of the pain-killing drug Endocet are being recalled because they erroneously contain 650 mg of acetaminophen while their label says 325 mg. While no injuries have been reported, consuming more acetaminophen than prescribed can lead to liver toxicity.

Look for bottles labeled “Endocet® (oxycodone/acetaminophen, USP) Tablets, 10 mg /325 mg 100 count” with a lot number of 402415NV or 402426NV and an expiration date of Jan, 2014.

Also if you’ve taken the smaller dosage pills before the wrong ones are identifiable because they’re larger and oval-shaped as opposed to capsule-shaped. The wrong pills are also marked “E797″ and “10″ on either side instead of “E712″ and “10/325.”

If you’ve received the wrong pills, you should stop using them and call Endo Pharmaceuticals to arrange for a return at at 1-866-723-2681.
