Posted: Updated:
Birmingham, AL -

The maker of one brand of baby aspirin is recalling its bottle of pills.  More than 16,000 bottles of baby aspirin are being recalled by Advance Pharmaceutical Inc. after one of the bottles was found to be filled with acetaminophen pills.
     The recall covers 120-pill bottles labeled to contain 81-milligram aspirin pills.
      The bottle discovered by a CVS pharmacist contained 500-mg acetaminophen pills.
      According to an Advance Pharmaceutical spokesman, no injuries have been reported.
     Doctors say unknowingly taking acetaminophen instead of baby aspirin could lead to an overdose that results in liver failure, the need for a liver transplant or death.
