Veterinary Drug Recalled

According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a warning to veterinarians about the possibility that phenobarbital tablets produced and labeled as phenobarbital by Qualitest Pharmaceuticals may actually be mislabeled hydrocodone tartrate and acetaminophen tablets. The company issued a recall of the phenobarbital tablets on February 5, 2011, but the FDA reports that they have recently received reports of severe adverse events associated with the administration of the mislabeled product to pets.
