Pfizer Recall

Pfizer has issued a recall for its generic citalopram SSRI antidepressant and its generic prostate drug finasteride because of a label switch.

The recall includes citalopram 10-milligram tablets in a 100-count bottle and finasteride 5-milligram tablets in a 90-count bottle. Both of the recalled medicines carry the lot number FI0510058-A on the label.

Pfizer – I say Pfizer, it is actually their subsidiary Greenstone – naturally blames someone else for the recall, saying “incorrect labels [may] have been placed on the bottles by a third-party manufacturer.
