As per a leading business daily, pharma company Cadila Healthcare has decided to voluntarily recall 19,536 bottles of its 'Benzonatate' capsules in the US due to them being "wet and/or leaking capsules". These are used to treat coughs. In line with a notification by the US Food and Drug Administration (USFDA), the recall has been voluntarily undertaken by the company through its US based arm Zydus Pharmaceuticals USA Inc. and was initiated on the 23rd of December. Further, the recall has been carried out under 'Class-II', which the USFDA states as a situation in which use of a violative product may cause temporary or medically reversible adverse health consequences.

Most telecom stocks are trading lower today. Reliance Communications and Idea Cellular are leading the losers. As per a leading financial daily, Idea Cellular is close to signing a large deal with Sixth Sense Media a US based mobile marketing IT firm. Under the proposed deal, Sixth Sense will help Idea increase its mobile revenues by developing strategies to leverage its core network and customer services.
