Motrin Recall announced for Certain Lots

Motrin recall announced - fda.gov

(Best Syndication News) - The US Food and Drug Administration announced that The McNeil Consumer Healthcare Division of McNEIL-PPC, Inc. is voluntarily recalling certain lots of Motrin products because the company is concerned that they might not dissolve as quickly when they near the expiration date. They determined this during sample product testing and will recall the product from retailers only for quality standard concerns.

There are no adverse events or health risks with this recall. The medicine can still be taken; however, the company wants to let consumers know that the product can be delayed in offering pain relief when nearing the expiration date. The company will be recalling the product from retailers of the involved lots. They will not be issuing a consumer product recall at this time. The products were distributed to the US, Puerto Rico, Bahamas, Fiji, Belize, ST. Lucia, and Jamaica.

Certain lots of MOTRIN® IB 24 count COATED CAPLETS, MOTRIN® IB 24 count COATED TABLETS and MOTRIN® IB 24+6 count COATED CAPLETS are involved in the recall. See the complete list of UPC codes and Lot Numbers involved in the recall below. The lot number is listed on the side of the label on the carton.

Customers with questions can call the McNeil Consumer Call Center toll-free at 1-888-222-6036 (Monday-Friday 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. ET).
