GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) has warned that some bottles of Alli — a weight-loss drug distributed by the company — have been tampered with.
The company said that some Alli bottles bought in stores in seven states contained products other than the weight-loss drug. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is currently investigating the company’s claims.
GlaxoSmithKline said that the bottles that were tampered with could contain tablets and capsules of different shapes and colors. Alli pills are turquoise.
The company has yet to announce whether or not it will issue a recall. The tampered bottles were found in Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, New York, North Carolina and Texas.
GSK stock is up about 0.1% Wednesday.
