Contract Packaging Resources, Inc. Issues a Voluntary Nationwide Recall of Assured™ Brand Naproxen Sodium Tablets due to Packaging Mix-Up


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - October 20, 2014 - Greensboro, N.C., Contract Packaging Resources, a drug repackaging company, is voluntarily recalling 11,640 boxes of Assured™ brand Naproxen Sodium tablets because some cartons actually contain bottles of Ibuprofen, a different pain reliever. The Ibuprofen bottles were placed in the Naproxen Sodium boxes due to a packaging error. The affected products are: boxes of Assured™ brand Naproxen Sodium Tablets 220mg, 15 count (Lot #FH4102A) [SKU #122368/UPC #639277223685] containing bottles of Ibuprofen softgels in 200mg strength.

Consumers who intentionally avoid using Ibuprofen due to allergy, or other medical conditions, should be advised that they may have inadvertently purchased Ibuprofen 200mg softgels, believing it was Naproxen Sodium 220mg tablets. Allergic reactions can range from mild irritation or hives to serious reactions such as anaphylaxes that may be life-threatening. The firm has not received any reports of adverse events related to this recall.

The recalled Assured brand drug products were distributed nationwide to Dollar Tree® and sold via the Dollar Tree® retail stores and internet site. Contract Packaging Resources is notifying its distributors and customers directly and arranging for replacement of all recalled products. Consumers may return the recalled products to the place of purchase or contact the firm by phone at 336-252-3422, on Monday – Friday from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm (Eastern).
