Irish Medicines Board Extends Paracetamol Recall To All Batches
All batches of the paracetamol tablet Paratabs 500mg are being recalled by the Irish Medicines Board due to fears of contamination which is most likely to be mould. This applies to all tablets dispensed since August 29.

As people could not have purchased the product without a prescription , they are being asked to return any unused tablets to their pharmacy and not to consume anymore Paratabs, while pharmacies have to quarantine their unsold stocks.
