Pharmetics recalls pain relievers in Canada

Health Canada announced Tuesday that OTC drugmaker Pharmetics is recalling six pain-relief products.

The recall follows a GMP inspection by the regulator of the contract manufacturer's plant in Laval, Quebec. Production-line deficiencies indicated the potential for such problems as contamination between product lines and product labels bearing incorrect expiration dates.

Among the recalled products are acetaminophen, sinus-relief medication and back-pain tablets sold in drug stores and supermarkets. The recalled drugs carry the retail store's brand.
