Faulty sieve likely shed metal, driving pill recall

The report of a piece of wire found in a Bronco-DM cough medication tablet has led to a recall by the drugmaker. Hong Kong-based Universal Pharmaceutical Laboratories, at the prompting of the Department of Health, has recalled four batches of the drug produced on one of its production lines.

The metal piece may have come from a sieve. The drugmaker had identified damage to a production line sieve in May and replaced it.
