Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warned the public against fake Biogesic paracetamol tablets that are currently being sold in the market.

According to a report from ABS-CBN, the agency released an advisory on March 16, showing the difference in color, print, and pattern of the design of the real Biogesic versus the fake ones.
