Latest on this recall I did earlier today: https://shaunynews.com/2015/05/07/uk-tramadol-50mg-capsules-recall-new-update-2/

~~~~~2nd UPDATE ABOVE~~~~

https://www.gov.uk/drug-device-alerts/tramadol-50mg-capsules-risk-of-fungal-contamination

Official Government call-back for Tramadol. All users in the UK will lose this drug. I hear they have a replacement already there. But this Tramadol is used GLOBALLY. So the UK have advised Dr’s and Hospitals not to use the Tramadol we know. If you are in America it may be called. I checked here and here http://www.relonchem.com/ orhttp://www.kentpharm.co.uk/Kent_Pharmaceutical/file/news.php And nothing. Many are debating if this is 1 batch, 2 batches, I think it’s safer to presume it’s ALL branches. The group I run for people with Chronic Illness are positive it is all brands
