Additional OTC Products Recalled

Certain lots of several OTC products have been voluntarily recalled by McNeil Consumer Healthcare as a precautionary measure. No adverse effects have been associated with use of any of the products. Poor recordkeeping at the troubled Pennsylvania plant involved in last year’s recall prevented the company from assuring product quality of most of the product lines. The products involved in quality-related recalls are Tylenol 8 Hour, Tylenol Arthritis Pain, Tylenol upper respiratory products, Benadryl, Sudafed PE, and Sinutab. Lot numbers can be viewed McNeil also is recalling certain lots of Rolaids Multi-Symptom Berry Tablets at the wholesale level only. The reason for this action is the products do not include the required language, “Does not meet USP” standards, on their labels. Consumers can access full details and other information about the recall at or by calling the McNeil Consumer Care Center at 1-888-222-6036. Adverse reactions can be reported to the FDA’s MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting program.
