2. The packaged oxycodone hydrochloride composition of claim 1, wherein the 14-hydroxycodeinone is derived solely from 8.alpha.,14-dihydroxy-7,8-dihydrocodeinone.

3. The packaged oxycodone hydrochloride composition of claim 1, wherein the oxycodone hydrochloride active pharmaceutical ingredient has less than 15 ppm 14-hydroxycodeinone.

4. The packaged oxycodone hydrochloride composition of claim 1, wherein the oxycodone hydrochloride active pharmaceutical ingredient has less than 10 ppm 14-hydroxycodeinone.

5. The packaged oxycodone hydrochloride composition of claim 1, wherein the oxycodone hydrochloride active pharmaceutical ingredient has a lower limit of 14-hydroxycodeinone of 0.25 ppm.

6. The packaged oxycodone hydrochloride composition of claim 1, wherein the oxycodone hydrochloride active pharmaceutical ingredient has a lower limit of 14-hydroxycodeinone of 0.5 ppm.

7. The packaged oxycodone hydrochloride composition of claim 1, wherein the oxycodone hydrochloride active pharmaceutical ingredient has a lower limit of 14-hydroxycodeinone of 1 ppm.

8. The packaged oxycodone hydrochloride composition of claim 1, wherein the oxycodone hydrochloride active pharmaceutical ingredient has a lower limit of 14-hydroxycodeinone of 2 ppm.
