Wrong labeling prompts acetaminophen recall

The 550 mg tablets were incorrectly labeled as 325 mg tablets.

Medline Industries, Inc. is voluntarily recalling a lot of acetaminophen tablets, 500 mg, uncoated compressed tablets because they are incorrectly labeled as 325 mg tablets, according to a company press release on the FDA website.

The error is not easily identifiable by the user or prescriber.

To date, Medline Industries, Inc. has not received any reports of adverse events associated with this product.
