    Are either of these the same chemicals found in the tainted, musty smelling Lipitor? (IIRC, Ed Silverman at Pharmalot reported the Lipitor story recently.) It seems odd that this issue has arisen at two different manufacturers at two different plants this year.

    k, you are absolutely correct – if I had prizes I give one to you!

    The cause of the Lipitor recalled earlier this month was also 2,4,6-tribromoanisole. Ed cited this FDA enforcement report – scroll down about a thrid of the way or just do a cntrl-F to look for Lipitor. This recall was for five lots and a total of 4.6 million bottles.
