Tylenol, Motrin and Benadryl Products Recalled

A voluntary recall of children’s and adult Tylenol, Motrin and Benadryl was initiated on July 8, 2010. The manufacturer, McNeil Consumer Healthcare, acknowledged that multiple types of these products were exposed to a chemical called TBA that is used on wooden shipping and storage pallets. Trace amounts of this chemical have altered the makeup of the drugs, making them potentially harmful, though no medical incidents have been reported.

The first voluntary recall by McNeil was in January 2010 after consumers complained of a musky odor coming from bottles of various products, a second was instituted on June 15 and the third on July 8. These extended recall lists are considered to be precautionary after an internal review revealed that some drugs contained a higher concentration of active ingredients than was indicated by the label, some contained sub-par inactive ingredients and others showed traces of the TBA chemical. A full list of the recalled products is available on the company’s recall website.

Should you have any of these products on your shelves at home, the first course of recommended action is to try to return the medication to the store from which it was purchased. Some stores will allow the return of open packages, but policies are being made on a store by store basis. If that is not an option, you can call McNeil at 888-222-6036 or email.

To find out if your medicine has been recalled, enter its lot number (found on the side of the bottle label) here. The company is offering to either refund your money for the products purchased or to replace a medication when new product is available, free of charge. Please refrain from giving children adult forms of mediation that may not be recalled and resort to generic brands that have not been affected.
