Hello. I would like to help you find an answer.

Yes, excedrin (novartis is the manufacturer) voluntarily pulled it off the shelves because of broken tablets.

They are currently working on improvements and will re issue the medication soon. This is from a press release....

The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a press release on Jan. 8 with details on Novartis' voluntary recall, which included Excedrin and NoDoz products with expiration dates of Dec. 20, 2014 or earlier

You should be able to find excedrin that has an expiration date after Dec 20, 2014. You may need to shop around at local pharmacies but they are available.

If not, you can order them online. Just make sure when you order them that they don't have an expiration before that date.
