Rugby aspirin recalled over bottle mix-up


ATLANTA - A pharmaceutical company is recalling Rugby label Enteric Coated Aspirin after a complaint about a bottle containing the wrong pills.

According to its label, the product is distributed in Duluth.

Advance Pharmaceutical announced Thursday that it’s voluntarily recalling 81 mg Rugby label Enteric Coated Aspirin Tablets, Lot 13A026. The company received a complaint that an aspirin bottle contained Acetaminophen tablets.

“Consumers may be inadvertently taking Acetaminophen 500 mg instead of Enteric Coated Aspirin 81 mg, which may cause severe liver damage to those who take other drugs containing acetaminophen, consumers who take three or more alcoholic drinks every day, or those who have liver disease,” a U.S. Food and Drug Administration news release said.
