Teva purchased Actavis. According to the TeVault website, they are still manufacturing a Brand Equivalent generic Methylphenidate with the OROS delivery system:

This page has country-specific contact information to inquire about Teva generics formerly produced by Actavis:

As of Dec 12, 2018 my local Walgreens filled my scrip with alza capsules and the label listed “MFG Actavis”

Please contact the FDA to report problems with non-OROS generics. They do follow up:
