After hospitalization of one user, recall was initiated Feb. 5 and followed with letter to Internet, mail and phone order buyers as well as several retailers. Marketer NuMeridian (Arcadia, Calif.) is participating in the recall, but parties are unaware of how many bottles are extant and how many contain the drug.
