Bronx residents reminded millions of bottles of Aceta-minopen recalled

Millions of bottles of Aceta-minopen have been recalled due to the possibility of metal fragments within the pills.

Health care professionals took to the streets Saturday to warn residents to check the batch number of their pills to ensure they are safe. They say many Bronx residents purchase generic brand medication, and due to this, they must be extra cautious.

Doctors say the ingestion of pills with metal fragments can do server damage to the body during digestion. They recommend residents avoid purchasing generic brand pain relievers for a few months.
