IVAX Pharmaceuticals is recalling affected lots of Goldline acetaminophen tablets and caplets due to a labeling error stating that usage should not exceed 12 pills per 24 hours, instead of the recommended eight-pill maximum in a 24-hour period. Specifically, the Extra Strength Genapap 500-mg and Extra Strength Genebs 500-mg tablets and caplets are affected. This inadvertent increase in the maximum daily dose of acetaminophen could put patients at risk for liver injury, although the company said it has received no reports of serious illness or injury related to the labeling mishap.
