GlaxoSmithKline halts Excedrin production over manufacturing stumble

GlaxoSmithKline, in the midst of sorting out its massive consumer health venture with Pfizer, has run into issues with one of its best-selling consumer brands. It has voluntarily halted production and distribution of Excedrin after manufacturing issues put the quality of some of the pain meds into question.
 
The drugmaker says it put a hold on Excedrin manufacturing after routine testing found “inconsistencies” in how the plant transfers and weighs ingredients used in Excedrin Extra Strength caplets and geltabs and Excedrin Migraine caplets and geltabs.
