The TOP Food and Drug pharmacy in Edmonds was forced to recall all prescription medications dispensed from their pharmacy between June 1 and September 2nd. They have also cleared their shelves of some medications and restocked them with fresh medications. These steps came upon the wake of the arrest of one of their pharmacists in connection with the investigation into credit card fraud and knowingly filling prescriptions with expired medications, according to The Seattle Times.
It is unknown whether anyone suffered health problems due to taking expired medications. Medications like birth control pills, eye medications and inhalers that are dispensed in the manufacturers box are not a concern as they have an expiration date printed on the box. The main concern would be prescriptions for antibiotics and some biologicals.
