Consumers cautioned that medicine may have been affected by Sandy

NJToday.net, November 21, 2012
Attorney General Jeffrey S. Chiesa and the NJ Div. of Consumer Affairs today advised consumers to check certain prescription medications that may have been affected by temperature changes, due to power outages caused by Hurricane Sandy. "Through the State Board of Pharmacy, we have notified all pharmacists in NJ of the need to dispose of any temperature-sensitive medications that may have lost their effectiveness during blackouts caused by Hurricane Sandy," Chiesa said. "We are extending the same warning to consumers. If you have concerns about any prescription medication in your home, talk with your doctor or pharmacist. Replace any medications that were exposed to temperatures beyond those recommended by the manufacturer."
