Excedrin and Bufferin are making recall headlines this week, but they pale in comparison to the 10 worst drug recalls in FDA history.

Recalls - Phenylpropanolamine
3 / 11

9. Phenylpropanolamine (PPA) -- Maker: No principal manufacturer, widely manufactured across the industry
Recalled: 2000 (at least 60 years on the market)
Financial damage: Untold millions, if not billions (one manufacturer alone settled for $15 million)
