Date:7/16/2010

SILVER SPRING, Md., July 16 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The public should be on the lookout for stolen inhalers after some were found in a number of pharmacies. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) says the safety and effectiveness of the stolen Advair Diskus inhalers cannot be assured, so consumers should not use them.
