Pfizer Inc., the world’s biggest drugmaker, recalled 191,000 bottles of Lipitor after receiving three complaints of a musty odor coming from the containers of the cholesterol drug. The complaints were received in July and originated from the same batch of bottles from a third-party manufacturer, according to a spokesman for Pfizer. The company says an investigation found that the odor is unlikely to be harmful. The cost of the recall won’t be material, and the company doesn’t plan to take a charge for it. Pfizer, based in New York, is working with the maker to determine the odor’s cause.
