Ibuprofen and Oxcarbazepine Tablets by American Health Packaging: Recall - Mislabeled Packaging

Please check your ibuprofen and your Oxcarbazepine today! You could be gettting ibuprofen instead of Oxcarbazepine and visa versa! American Health Packaging (AHP) voluntarily recalled Lot #142588, Expiration Date, 01/2016 of Ibuprofen Tablets, USP, 600 mg, in a hospital unit dose presentation that may contain individual blistered doses labeled as Oxcarbazepine Tablets, 300 mg, lot #142544. In addition, AHP voluntarily recalled Oxcarbazepine Tablets, 300 mg, lot #142544, Expiration Date, 02/2016. This recall is the result of mislabeled inner unit dose blister packaging which could result in patients receiving ibuprofen and missing their scheduled dose of oxcarbazepine.
