According to the October 28, 2020, US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Enforcement Report, the product label lists an incorrect 24-month expiration rather than the correct 18-month expiration. 

The following products, manufactured for Amerigen Pharmaceuticals Inc. and distributed throughout the United States, were included in the recall:

  • 5-mg dextroamphetamine saccharate, amphetamine aspartate monohydrate, dextroamphetamine sulfate, and amphetamine sulfate extended-release capsules in 100-count bottles (NDC 43975-277-10) from lot 19S07 (Exp. 9/21);

  • 30-mg dextroamphetamine saccharate, amphetamine aspartate monohydrate, dextroamphetamine sulfate, and amphetamine sulfate extended-release capsules in 100-count bottles (NDC 43975-282-10) from lots 19T17 (Exp. 12/21), 19T18 (Exp. 1/22), 19T19 (Exp. 1/22), 20D05 (Exp. 4/22), and 20D21 (Exp. 5/22).
