The recall affects 37 unexpired lots of levothyroxine and liothyronine (Thyroid Tablets, USP) 15, 30, 60, 90 and 120 milligrams. The company is reaching out to all wholesale customers to ask them to stop filling prescriptions with the affected pills, which are sold in 100-count bottles.
Details on the specific lots and product descriptions can be found on the FDA website.

I take this, but my dosage is not on the recall list.

Very common occurrence today. Happens all the time with many meds and mfrs. More so today than in my 50 years of practice.

The FDA inspected the Sichuan Friendly Pharmaceutical Co.'s manufacturing plant in October. In a letter dated June 22, the agency informed the Chinese company that the plant was not meeting its good manufacturing process standards.
It was discovered in October but not notified until June?

I have great doubts about any item intended for human consumption coming out of China. The fact that their manufacturers sold tainted milk for INFANTS within their own country tells me there is a huge lack of both morals and safeguards in place...and apparently we aren't checking on our side either.
