A NJ CVS Mixes Up Cancer Drug & Fluoride Pill For Some Customers

A mix-up of drugs has been reported in New Jersey. Some customers expecting to get fluoride medication, ended up with breast cancer drugs.

FOX News Radio’s Ron Flatter reports:

Audio clip:

Dozens of customers at a CVS store in Chatham, New Jersey who thought they were getting fluoride pills were instead given the breast-cancer drug Tamoxifen. Apparently, the pills look very similar.

The big difference?

The fluoride pills have the letters ‘S-C-I’ on them. The cancer drug… The letter ‘M’.

Fluoride prescriptions filled much of this winter may have been affected. CVS has apologized and worked to contact the customers who got the wrong pills.
