Recall of Tylenol Cold Liquid Products

Silver Spring, Maryland–(ENEWSPF)–November 27, 2010.  In consultation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), McNeil Consumer Healthcare, Division of McNEIL-PPC, Inc., is recalling, from the wholesale and retail level, three TYLENOL® Cold Multi-Symptom liquid products in order to update the labeling for these products. The specific products involved, listed below, are sold in the United States.

This is a wholesale and retail level recall and is not being undertaken on the basis of adverse events. No action is required by consumers or healthcare providers and consumers can continue to use the product.

McNeil Consumer Healthcare initiated the recall after an internal review revealed that information about the presence of alcohol from flavoring agents was noted as an inactive ingredient listed on the package, but not on the front panel of the product. Certain flavoring agents contribute small (< 1%) amounts of alcohol.

Consumers with questions should call our Consumer Care Center at 1-888-222-6036 (available Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. ET and Saturday – Sunday, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. Eastern Time.)
