Aurobindo Pharma USA, Inc. voluntarily recalled Mirtazapine Tablets due to an error on the label that listed the incorrect strength.

Aurobindo Pharma USA, Inc. announced on Dec. 30, 2019 that it was voluntarily recalling on lot of Mirtazapine tablets because the label on the bottles incorrectly stated the strength as Mirtazapine 7.5 mg, but the product may contain 15 mg tablets.
