J and J has recalled 9.3 million bottles of Tylenol cold treatments because they don’t disclose the medicine’s alcohol content on the front label.
The recall affects three types of Tylenol Multi-Symptom liquid cold medicine sold in the U.S. by the McNeil Consumer Healthcare unit, J&J spokeswoman Bonnie Jacobs said today in a telephone interview. Flavoring agents that contain less than 1 percent alcohol are used in the formulations, and the alcohol content was listed on the package rather than the front of the bottle, according to a statement on J&J’s website.
“This is a wholesale and retail level recall and is not being undertaken on the basis of adverse events,” J&J said on the website. “No action is required by consumers or health-care providers and consumers can continue to use the product.”
