FDA STATEMENT ON GOODY'S HEADACHE POWDER

 WASHINGTON, Dec. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- The Food and Drug Administration today alerted consumers to a total market withdrawal by Goody's Manufacturing Co. of all sizes of its Goody's Headache Powder, intended for temporary relief of pain, because of a possible tampering incident. The incident, in which cyanide was found in a package of the product, may have resulted in the death of a 51-year- old man in Tennessee.
 The company has asked consumers who have any size package of the powder to destroy it or return it to the place of purchase.
 "We urge consumers to cooperate with the company's request not to consume the product," said FDA Commissioner David A. Kessler, M.D.
 Any consumer with a product that appears to have been tampered with should call Goody's Manufacturing Co. immediately at 919-659-8440.
 "We are working with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and local authorities to determine whether this is an isolated incident," Kessler said. "As always, consumers should examine all medications carefully before taking them."
