Consumer Daily Reports

Nearly 200,000 bottles of extra-strength acetaminophen are being recalled across the U.S. because of a mislabeling error that could result in potentially severe health complications. 
A-S Medication Solutions, LLM said its over-the-counter products inadvertently received an incomplete prescription drug label instead of the official OTC Drug Facts label. This resulted in important health information being excluded from the packaging.

“Use of acetaminophen could be potentially harmful if safety warnings contained on the OTC label are not observed including: liver damage if consumers exceed the recommended dose, combine use with excessive consumption of alcohol, or are allergic to the active ingredient,” the company said in an announcement posted to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s website.

ASM said it will be notifying distributors and customers about the recall. The products were designated as “Acetaminophen Extra Strength 500 mg Tablets, 100 ct. bottles” and were distributed by Humana to its members in Health Essentials Kits.

Acetaminophen poisonings cause concern


This recall once again shines a light on the potential dangers of acetaminophen, which is usually used to treat pain and fever symptoms. In October, a study found that acetaminophen poisonings were becoming increasingly common because the drugs were being prescribed in higher doses.

The researchers found that poisoning cases rose by 40 percent over a five-year period starting in 2003, shortly after consumers were able to buy 1,000-milligram doses of the drug instead of being limited to 500-milligram doses. Unfortunately, the team said poisoning cases have continued to rise every year since then.

“It is a very safe drug, but only for short-term pain relief and as long as the daily dosage does not go above the recommended range,” stated researcher Andrea Burden.

Consumers who have questions about the ASM acetaminophen recall can contact the company by phone at 847-680-3515, ext. 236, or by email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Big wheels and low-profile tires are a popular way to add style to your car. But do tires with shorter sidewalls have any performance benefits? And how do they stack up when faced with the scourge of winter and spring driving - the pothole? CR experts evaluate how a low-profile tire on 18-inch wheels handles a pothole on our test track compared to a more traditional 16-inch wheel with a taller sidewall tire. We also share tips on how you can avoid suffering a blowout or tire damage when driving in pothole-prone areas.

This week we drove the all-new 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander, and we share our first impressions on the interior styling, and how it handled on our track. Rivian, the fledgling electric truck and SUV nameplate, just announced a plan to install EV chargers at places known for outdoor recreation: state parks and campsites. We talk about how this plan differentiates it from other automakers, and whether it's enough to stand out in a market dominated by Tesla. We also discuss the potential resale value of gas-powered cars in a future that could be dominated by hybrids, why cars from different brands that share a parent company might have a big difference in quality, and the best way to judge a car for long-term comfort during a test drive. ----------------------------------- Subscribe to Talking Cars on Apple Podcasts!

FTC Video: Avoid COVID-19 Stimulus Payment Scams | Federal Trade Commission


Related Videos On: Avoid COVID-19 Stimulus Payment Scams | Federal Trade Commission


Scammers are following the headlines about economic impact payments. Know how to spot and avoid the scams to keep your money and information to yourself. Learn more at https://ftc.gov/coronavirus. ********************************** Transcript: Hi, I’m Becca Kelly Slaughter, Acting Chair of the Federal Trade Commission, the nation’s consumer protection agency. You’ve probably heard the great news that the American Rescue Plan is now law. That means lots of people will soon be getting desperately-needed economic impact payments—some folks call them stimulus payments—of up to fourteen hundred dollars. Many of you have been here before, so you know these funds will come through direct deposit, check, or debit card. But we here at the FTC would like to remind you that scammers follow the headlines, too. So here are a few sure ways to spot a scammer trying to take your money or personal information. First, know that nobody in the government will ask you to pay anything up front to get your economic impact payment. There’s no way to get your payment faster, and there’s no form to fill out. That’s simply a scam. Second, the government will not call, email, text, or message you on social media to ask for your Social Security, bank account, or credit card number. Anyone who does is a scammer. Third, anyone who tells you to pay by money transfer, gift card, or cryptocurrency is a scammer. No matter WHY they say you need to pay. If you spot these scams, tell the FTC at ReportFraud.ftc.gov. Every report helps us try to stop scammers. And let me say a word to would-be scammers: the FTC will use all of its enforcement authority to come after bad actors who try to take advantage of people anxiously awaiting relief. To learn more about avoiding pandemic-related scams, visit FTC.gov/coronavirus. And help us spread the word. Share these tips and this video through your network. Thanks for helping us protect people from scams. ********************************** The Federal Trade Commission deals with issues that touch the economic life of every American. It is the only federal agency with both consumer protection and competition jurisdiction in broad sectors of the economy. The FTC pursues vigorous and effective law enforcement; advances consumers' interests by sharing its expertise with federal and state legislatures and U.S. and international government agencies; develops policy and research tools through hearings, workshops, and conferences; and creates practical and plain-language educational programs for consumers and businesses in a global marketplace with constantly changing technologies.
