Drug Alli recalled after foreign pills found in bottles

London (AP) -- GlaxoSmithKline has recalled the weight loss drug Alli after receiving reports that other pills and tablets are being found in the bottles.

The over-the-counter drug comes in a turquoise blue capsule with a dark blue band and the text "60 Orlistat." However, consumers have been finding a range of tablets in the bottles, the British drugmaker said Thursday,

GlaxoSmithKline also said some bottles have tamper-resistant seals that are not authentic. Alli comes in bottles with an inner foil barrier labeled "Sealed for Your Protection."
