McNeil Consumer Healthcare is in the spotlight again after its product, Tylenol, has been recalled again. Three types of Tylenol cold multi-system liquid products have been recalled due to inaccurate labeling. They contain very small amounts of alcohol. This was noted as an inactive ingredient on the package but not on the front panel of the products, making them misleading to consumers.
If a customer has any of the recalled products, they can continue to use them as the recall was not made on the basis of adverse events.
The company are also recalling some of their other medicines - Children’s Benadryl Allergy Fast Melt tablets in cherry and grape flavors and Junior Strength Motrin Caplets.
The Motrin was sold in the USA, and the Children’s Benadryl was sold in the USA, Belize, Barbados, Canada, Puerto Rico, St. Martin and St. Thomas.
They were recalled due to insufficient development and manufacturing processes. Whether they meet quality standards or not is unclear, but there have been no reported adverse events due to this problem.
If you are a consumer of their products and have any questions, please call their Customer Care Center on 1-888-222-6036.
With the number of cold and allergy medicines that have been recalled in recent times for various reasons, an overhaul of the way drug companies do business may be needed.
