Concentrated Acetaminophen Drops Recalled by Brookstone Pharmaceuticals
Brookstone Pharmaceuticals, LLC, Alpharetta, GA has initiated a nationwide recall of all lots of Concentrated Acetaminophen Drops (NDC#42192-504-16) in 16 ounce (473 ml) bulk containers.
This 16oz container is comparable to the size generally used to package regular strength acetaminophen liquid preparations. This aspect of the product coupled with the absence of an integrated dosage delivery device is a contributing factor to possible dosing errors, especially inadvertent overdosing. Brookstone has distributed 344 bottles nationally and has donated 5301 bottles to charity for international distribution.
Over dosage of acetaminophen may result in liver toxicity, kidney damage, and blood disorders. The FDA is aware of several medication error reports that document life-threatening or fatal adverse events in children less than 3 years of age, due to confusion associated with the concentrated versus regular strength acetaminophen liquid. Also, in a recent FDA advisory panel, it was recommended that one of the 2 strengths of acetaminophen should be removed from the market due to possible confusion which could result in overdosing.
Brookstoneâ€™s concentrated acetaminophen contains acetaminophen 80 mg/0.8 mL. Regular strength acetaminophen elixir contains 160 mg/5 ml. The firm is recalling its product to the consumer level as a cautionary measure to minimize any confusion and potential risk to patients from dosing errors.
