I try and keep on top of some of this stuff and the latest news.

If I can find the website its on I will add it but this is their newest, found the site listed on the bottom.



For more information, individuals can call the company at (888) 477-2403, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. EST.

Related to this recall, Endo Pharmaceuticals, Inc., announced that a temporary shut-down of Novartis Consumer Health Inc.'s Lincoln, Neb., manufacturing facility was required, where some of Endo’s products are also packaged. The company says pharmacies may experience a short-term shortage of certain opioid analgesics.

These include:

* Oxymorphone hydrochloride extended-release tablets (Opana ER)
* Oxymorphone hydrochloride (Opana)
* Oxymorphone hydrochloride tablets
* Oxycodone hydrochloride and acetaminophen tablets (Percocet)
* Oxycodone hydrochloride and aspirin tablets (Percodan)
* Oxycodone hydrochloride and acetaminophen tablets (Endocet)
* Oxycodone hydrochloride and aspirin tablets (Endodan)
* Morphine sulfate extended-release tablets
* Hydrocodone bitartrate/acetaminophen tablets (Zydone)


With luck this will not affect anyone.
