Pfizer Inc. announced a recall of 38,000 bottles of cholesterol drug Lipitor due to an unpleasant odor. This latest recall was triggered by customer complaints of a foul odor coming from the bottle. The bottle is made by a company in Puerto Rico. It has been found to contain the chemical tribromoanisole, a pesticide used on the wooden pallets where the bottles are stored.
Pfizer has recalled over 360,000 bottles of Lipitor in the last three months because of the issue. Eek! Be careful if you take this cholesterol drug.
