Excedrins have been taken off the market. When will they return or will they?

Novartis had a bit of a problem with the FDA and had to recall multiple meds. Prevacid is back so I would expect that excedrin will be soon. Why not take the store brand, they are the same thing?

They said they had "foreign meds" contaminating some of their things. I think they meant foreign as in not the med it was supposed to be, not from another country. I could be wrong, lol. I think some general cleanliness issues too. It was at one plant, and I guess it made excedrin, prevacid and a few others. You'd think a company that makes the kind of money they do they could avoid those things.

According to the bottles, the store brand is exactly the same. I have tried Rite Aid brand and Equate brand. Neither work as well as Execdrin. Does not make any sense I know, but I am not the only Execdrin taker and have had several people tell me they have tried store brands with not as quick or as good of a result as with Execdrin. So, is not just me.
