RECALLING FIRM/MANUFACTURER
Recalling Firm: Barr Laboratories, Inc., Cincinnati, OH, by letters on November 10, 2008.
Manufacturer: Barr Laboratories, Inc., Pomona, NY. Firm initiated recall is ongoing.
REASON
A small amount of text was missing from the "Brief Summary Patient Package Insert" portion of the Combination Detailed Patient Labeling and Brief Summary Package Insert for the "Tri-Legest Fe 28" product. In the Brief Summary, under BEFORE YOU START TAKING YOUR PILLS, in statement #2, patients are instructed to LOOK AT YOUR PILL PACK TO SEE IF IT HAS 21 or 28 PILLS. Both the 21- and 28-day packs are then described. Both are identical for the first three weeks or 21 tablets (5 pink, 7 yellow and 9 blue tablets). It then states that in the 28 day pack, these are followed by 1 week of reminder brown pills (without hormones). Statement #3 in this section of the Brief Summary provides information on taking the pills and diagrams of the both the 21- and 28-day pill packs. This is where the text is missing. Next to the diagram for the 21-day pack the text reads: [Each Tri-Legest 21 tablet dispenser contains 5 light pink, 7 light yellow, and 9 light blue pills for WEEKS 1, 2, and 3. These tablets are to be taken in the following order one light pink tablet each day for five days, one light yellow tablet each day for seven days, and then one light blue tablet each day for nine days.] Next to the 28-day pack the section of text is missing. The missing section is 2 sentences long and reads exactly as the bracketed statement above except for the substitution of "Tri-Legest Fe 28" for "Tri-Legest 21" in the beginning, and the inclusion of the following phrase at the end: "and followed by one brown tablet each day for seven days." The diagram for the 28-day pack is presented next to the blank area of missing text.

RECALLING FIRM/MANUFACTURER
Zest Anchors, Inc., Escondido, CA, by letter on April 23, 2008. Firm initiated recall is complete.
REASON
The recall was initiated after the firm discovered through a customer complaint that the Locator Abutments for 5.7 Screw-vent & Compatibles do not fit properly in all sizes of the Zimmer Dental 5.7mm diameter Tapered Screw-Vent Implants (TSV6B8, TSV6B10, TSV6B11, TSV6B13, TSV6B16, TSV6H8, TSV6H10, TSV6H11, TSV6H13 and TSV6H16). The Locator Abutment bottoms out in the pilot hole of these implants causing up to a half millimeter gap between the seating surface of the Locator Abutment and the implant. This gap in the fit could allow bacteria to enter into the implant body, contaminating the implant, or allow screw loosening with the risk of abutment fracture.
