If you have any "store brand" bottles of Acetaminophen pain killer in your medicine cabinet, read this:

A major manufacturer of store-brand acetaminophen recalled 11 million bottles of the pain-relieving pills Thursday after discovering some were contaminated with metal fragments. There were no immediate reports of injuries or illness.

Perrigo Co. said it discovered the metal bits during quality-control checks.


Wal-Mart Stores Inc., CVS Corp., Walgreen Co. and Costco Wholesale Corp. are among the companies Perrigo supplies with health care products, according to company Securities and Exchange Commission filings.
