A PSA!!!! YIKES!!!! Did you just buy some generic Tylenol?

Acetaminophen has been recalled! Yep if you have bought some recently return it immediately. It seems there is some metallic contamination in the medication.

Here is a bit of the article

“The FDA today announced a recall of about 11 million bottles of store-brand acetaminophen 500-milligram caplets.
Those caplets are over-the-counter drugs for pain relief and fever reduction. They're sold by about 130 companies, including Wal-Mart, CVS, and other drug stores, grocery stores, and wholesalers.
The recall is due to "small metal fragments found in a small number of these caplets," states an FDA news release. “
