As of right now GSK is conducting an investigation and is working with the knowledge of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on this retailer level recall.
“Safety is our first priority and we are asking retailers and pharmacies to remove all alli® from their shelves immediately,” said Colin Mackenzie, President Consumer Healthcare North America. “We have posted a Consumer Alert on our website,, and issued a News Release with information and photographs to help consumers determine if their alli® is authentic.”
