Good morning all! I'm at back from a really restful vacation and saw this alert this morning and thought I would pass it on to you all!
McNeil Expands Recall To Include Additional Lots of Benadryl Allergy Ultratab, Children's Tylenol Meltaways, Motrin, IB, Tylenol Extra Strength, and Tylenol PM. McNeil Consumer Healthcare is recalling 21 additional lots of over-the-counter medicines, including Benadryl Allergy Ultratab, Children's Tylenol Meltaways, Motrin, IB. Tylenol Extra Strength, and Tylenol PM. This recall is a follow-up to product recalls that McNeil Consumer Healthcare announced on January 15, 2010 and June 15, 2010. These three recalls are due to consumer complaints of a musty or moldy odor that has been linked to the presence of trace amounts of a chemical called 2,4,6-tribromoanisole (TBA). After a full investigation, it was determined that the source of TBA and odor was the result of a breakdown of a chemical that is applied to wood used to build wooden pallets that transport and store product packaging materials. Although consumers have reported stomach pain, diarrhea, and nausea with the recalled product, McNeil has determined that the risk of serious adverse medical events is very low.
