I know a lot of us have been stocking up on Excedrin these past few weeks with all the good coupons and sales. But now there is a recall. Please go through your stash.


BREAKING: Recall of Excedrin, NoDoz, Gas-X and Bufferin

JANUARY 8, 2012 – Novartis Consumer Health (NCH) is voluntarily recalling all selected bottle sizes of Excedrin and NoDoz products with expiration dates of December 20, 2014 or earlier as well as Bufferin and Gas-X Prevention products with expiration dates of December 20, 2013 or earlier, in the United States. What’s the reason? Because the products may contain stray tablets, capsules, or caplets from other Novartis products, or contain broken or chipped tablets.

Here are the full recall details:

This is huge for couponers because many of these products released coupons quite often. I just found a bottle of Excedrin Extra Strength with an expiration date of February 13 in my medical drawer, so please check check check because I know many of you may have these products. And spread the word by sharing this post!
