Nurofen Plus recalled
Nurofen Plus has been recalled across the UK after they were found to mistakenly contain anti-psychotic and anti-epileptic drugs.
Reckitt Benckiser, the drug's manufacturer, recalled five boxes of the product and has halted distribution after discovering they contained other companies' medicines.
Nurofen Plus is for pain relief and contains codeine and all affected packs contain 32 tablets. The large capsules of Seroquel XL 50mg tablets have gold and black packaging while Neurontin, which comes in a two-piece, white capsule, is stored in white and silver blister packs. Nurofen Plus capsules have silver and black packaging.
It is estimated that around 250,000 packets are still in customers' hands. Scotland Yard has launched an invesitgation after four boxes contained the anti-psychotic drug Seroquel XL 50mg, and one packet contained Pfizer's anti-epileptic medication, Neurontin, in 100mg capsules.
Its Specialist Crime Directorate (SCD) that tackles serious and organised crime is now investigating.
