Tylenol is recalling various lots of its painkillers because of sanitation concerns during the production of the medicine, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration .
The products affected by the recall include:
- TYLENOL® 8 Hour
- TYLENOL® Arthritis Pain
- TYLENOL® upper respiratory products
- SUDAFED PE®
- *ROLAIDS® Multi-Symptom Berry Tablets
According to McNeil Consumer Healthcare, the voluntary recall is "a precautionary measure after an extensive review of past production records found instances where equipment cleaning procedures were insufficient or that cleaning was not adequately documented." The company said it is unlikely any of the products were impacted negatively by the manufacturing process, according to the FDA.
*ROLAIDS® Multi-Symptom Berry Tablets is also being added to the voluntary recall to address packaging that does not include the language "Does not meet USP" on its label, as required by regulation.
Consumers and healthcare providers can still use the recalled products, as the recall doesn't affect the safety of the medication, according to the FDA.
As a North Charleston personal injury lawyer , I'm glad to hear that the recalled medications will not negatively affect patients' health. I hope McNeil Consumer Healthcare can fix these sanitation problems to ensure the highest quality products in the future.
