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. The above is pasted directly from the news bulletin that came in my email. This is vital information! Let everyone know. If anyone finds out which store brand, it would be great! The bulletin came from cbs.com so maybe I can find out more there.
