Naproxin Bottles Recalled Due to Packaging Error

If you recently purchased Assured brand naproxen sodium at Dollar Tree or through the Dollar Tree website, you may have inadvertently purchased ibuprofen. Due to a packaging error, 11,640 boxes were mistakenly filled with the wrong softgel pills. The mistake and recall was announced via a press release issued by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on October 20, 2014. The press release states that the drug repackaging company Contract Packaging Resources is voluntarily recalling all boxes that were sold to unsuspecting customers.

The details of the product recall are as follows:

  • Boxes were labeled as: Assured™ brand Naproxen Sodium Tablets 220mg, 15 count (Lot #FH4102A) [SKU #122368/UPC #639277223685]
  • However, the boxes actually contained Ibuprofen softgels in 200mg strength

This is a potentially dangerous drug situation because some people are allergic to ibuprofen or have been advised to avoid ibuprofen due to medical conditions. Allergic reactions to ibuprofen can be serious and in the most severe cases can result in death.
