Packaging Mix-Up Prompts Recall of Assured Brand Naproxen Sodium Tablets

Ibuprofen bottles were placed in the Naproxen Sodium boxes instead of the intended product.

A packaging error has caused Contract Packaging Resources, a drug repackaging company, to voluntarily recall 11,640 boxes of Assured™ brand Naproxen Sodium tablets.

Some cartons contain bottles of Ibuprofen, a different pain reliever, according to a press release posted on the FDA website.

The Ibuprofen bottles were placed in the Naproxen Sodium folding cartons instead of cartons for the intended product.

The impacted products are: boxes of Assured™ brand Naproxen Sodium Tablets 220mg, 15 count (Lot #FH4102A) [SKU #122368/UPC #639277223685] containing bottles of Ibuprofen softgels in 200mg strength.

The recalled products were distributed nationwide to Dollar Tree and sold through the Dollar Tree retail stores and internet site.

Contract Packaging Resources is notifying its distributors and customers directly and arranging for replacement of all recalled products, according to the release.
