Recall : Tylenol, Benadryl, Sudafed, Sinutab and Rolaids

The FDA just announced it’s time for more meds to get pulled off the shelf! Specifically, “TYLENOL® 8 Hour, TYLENOL® Arthritis Pain, and TYLENOL® upper respiratory products, and certain lots of BENADRYL®, SUDAFED PE®, and SINUTAB® products.”

The problem isn’t stinky packaging this time, but an actual problem with “equipment cleaning procedures” at the factories where they were put together. Nobody is saying what got dirty, and the FDA release says “it is very unlikely that this [cleaning procedures] impacted the quality of these products”, but you know it’s gotta be something “Call the attorneys!” nasty since everything is getting pulled.

Also some “ROLAIDS® Multi-Symptom Berry Tablets” are getting pulled because somebody forgot to type “Does not meet USP” on the labels. That’s somebody’s job right there.

Here’s the highly official FDA release on this mess.

One solution to Xerox “installer quit unexpectedly” on mac

This was interesting. Installing a Xerox print driver on a new Mac Pro desktop with two active network connections caused a “installer quit unexpectedly” error at the very end of the install process.

The driver used was WC7755_UBPD_2.7.0_518.DMG which opened to Xerox Print Drivers 2.7.0.

The Xerox would install all the way to the “install complete” window, but as soon as the “install xerox printer” window appeared where you could select the printer on the network, the installer would shut down with a “installer quit unexpectedly” error.

The solution was to unplug one of the two network cables on the back of the mac. The installer worked perfectly when only one NIC/IP address was active.

Xerox tech support had nooooooo idea this was happening BTW.
