Manufacturer Ranbaxy has issued a voluntary recall for over 29,000 packages of its over-the-counter allergy med loratadine/pseudoephedrine (generic for Claritin-D). The recall is due to an unacceptable number of defects in the blister packaging of the tablets.

The generic is distributed under several different names and store brands (including CVS, Kroger, Discount Drug Mart, Sunmark, Rite Aid, Good Neighbor, and H-E-B)—you can find a complete list here. The defective packages were distributed in California, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Texas.

The affected packages have an expiration date of September 2015, and contain 5, 10, or 15 tablets, and are from lots 2554936 and 2554938.
