If your Lipitor smells like a men's locker room you may want to send it back to Pfizer. They've just expanded their current recall of the popular cholesterol drug to include an additional 19,000 bottles, bringing the total number recalled up to 360,000.
Pfizer began the recall in August but decided not to make a public announcement until October. It seems unclear how exactly people would know they were supposed to send back their Lipitor in August and September if there wasn't a public announcement, but I'm sure the decision to delay the announcement was based on the welfare of the customers and not the company's bottom line.
Johnson & Johnson has been dealing with musty odors of their own and has recalled a number of their products as well. One of these recalls is now the subject of an FDA criminal investigation.
Pfizer's CEO unexpectedly stepped down earlier this month, but the recall was not mentioned as a reason for this. I'm sure he just wants to spend more time with his family; his wonderful, cholesterol-free family.
