Posted on:Jan 2, 2011

Yet another recall from McNeil Consumer Healthcare has been announced, this time a voluntary recall of all product lots of Children’s Benadryl Allergy Fastmelt Tablets, in cherry and grape flavors, and all product lots of Junior Strength Motrin Caplets 24-count. Because this is a wholesale and retail-level recall, no action is required by consumers or health-care providers. The recall was prompted after McNeil’s own review revealed “insufficiencies in the development of the manufacturing process.” The recall notice states: “There is no indication that the recalled products do not meet quality standards, and this recall is not being undertaken on the basis of adverse events.” Concerned consumers can contact the company at 888-222-6036 and also at www.mcneilproductrecall.com.

McNeil previously recalled more than 40 varieties of infant and children’s liquid Tylenol, Motrin, Benadryl and Zyrtec and 21 types of infants’ and children’s liquid Tylenol.
