The following drugs were recalled in February, either voluntarily by the manufacturer or forcibly by the FDA.
RegenErect & RegenArouse:
Treatments for male erectile dysfunction; contained Tadalafil, which makes the drugs unapproved and was not listed on the labels.
Norgestimate and Ethinyl Estradiol Tablets:
Used as an oral contraceptive; a packaging error placed some of the tablets in the wrong order.
Phenylephrine HCl Injection:
Used for maintaining blood pressure during anesthesia (among other things); recalled because of visible particles found in some samples.
Dietary supplements (misc):

An over-the-counter pain reliever and fever reducer; recalled after reports that its dosing system was too difficult to use.
