GlaxoSmithKline is recalling the weight loss drug Alli after receiving reports that other pills and tablets are being found in the bottles.
The over-the-counter drug comes in a turquoise blue capsule with a dark blue band and the text "60 Orlistat." However, consumers have been finding a range of tablets in the bottles, the British drugmaker said Thursday,
GlaxoSmithKline also says some bottles have tamper-resistant seals that are not authentic. Alli comes in bottles with an inner foil barrier labeled "Sealed for Your Protection."
Some of those bottles are missing labels.
The company is asking pharmacies and retailers in the United States and Puerto Rico to immediately remove the drug from store shelves.
