Augmentin Recall

Speaking of GlaxoSmithKline, the pharmaceutical giant was told by the Hong Kong government to recall its antibiotic Augmentin because it contained detectable levels of plasticizers. The level of plasticizers is unlikely to be harmful in the usual dosages of Augmentin, which is easy to say unless you are the one taking the Augmentin.

Plasticizers are beating down Glaxo in Hong Kong a bit of late. Last month, Glaxo issued a recall for a pediatric antibiotic because of plasticizers in the product.
