The U.S. Food and Drug Administration confirmed that Novartis Consumer Health has recalled certain packages of Excedrin, NoDoz, Bufferin and Gas-X Prevention, over concerns that some of the bottles may contain stray pills of other medicines, as well as broken or chipped pills.

The Novartis recall affects Excedrin and NoDoz medicines with the expiration dates December 20, 2014 or earlier. It also includes Bufferin and Gas-X Prevention medicines with expiration dates of December 20, 2013 or earlier.

To date, federal regulators have not received any reports of adverse events stemming from the precautionary recall. Mixing different pills in the same bottle can be potentially dangerous, as consumers could inadvertently take the wrong product, which could cause consumers to suffer an overdose or an allergic reaction from injecting an unintended ingredient.
