GSK said it was voluntarily recalling the drug after receiving calls from consumers in several states reporting that tablets and capsules of various shapes and colors were found inside bottles of Alli. In addition, some bottles were missing labels and had tamper-evident seals that were not authentic. All tampered bottles were purchased at retail stores.

“Safety is our first priority and we are asking retailers and pharmacies to remove all Alli from their shelves immediately,” said Colin Mackenzie, president of Consumer Healthcare North America, in a statement. “We are committed to finding out what happened and to doing everything possible to prevent future issues with Alli.”
