Lipitor Recall Update: 38,000 More Bottles to be Recalled
November 1, 2010 – Last week, Pfizer announced that it was recalling another 38,000 bottles of its cholesterol drug Lipitor due to a moldy odor contained in the packaging. Pfizer recalled 140,000 bottles in August, 191,000 bottles in October, thus recalling some 360,000 bottles to date.
Commenting on the Lipitor recalls, Pfizer stated, “We have identified the source of the odor and we are enacting rigorous measures to prevent odor-related issues going forward.” Apparently the odor was caused by a chemical called 2,4,6-tribromoanisole, which is found on wooden pallets used to store and ship its bottles. Apparently, they used this chemical to treat the pallets.
