G&C Natural Nutrition, Inc. Issues Recall of Pyrola Due to Undeclared Drug Ingredients

The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services received information regarding a recall of Pyrola, 430mg/capsule. Advanced Joint Formula capsules may contain undeclared diclofenac and chlorpheniramine.

Diclofenac is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (commonly referred to as NSAIDs).
