Advance Pharmaceutical is voluntarily recalling its Rugby Enteric Coated Aspirin Tablets after the company received a complaint that the bottles contain the wrong medication. Instead of holding aspirin like the label says, some select bottles are filled with Acetaminophen tablets. This typically won’t cause an injury or illness unless a person intended to take acetaminophen and aspirin, and accidentally double-dosed on acetaminophen because of the pharmaceutical company’s mistake.
Consumers may be taking Acetaminophen 500 mg instead of their Aspirin if they are not aware of the mix-up. WSBTV says that overdosing on acetaminophen can lead to liver damage. Those who drink alcoholic drinks or already have liver disease are more at risk to the adverse effects of an acetaminophen overdose.
