Daytrana patches recalled by Shire

Shire is voluntarily recalling five lots and withdrawing one lot of Daytrana (methylphenidate transdermal system) due to difficulty removing the release liner from some of the patches. This recall is not due to safety issues. All Daytrana patches can continue to be used unless the release liner cannot be removed or the patches are damaged while being opened.
