McNeil Issues Another Recall: Tylenol Cold Multi-Symptom Liquid Products

In consultation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), McNeil Consumer Healthcare has issued a voluntary recall of all product lots of three Tylenol Cold Multi-Symptom liquid products sold in the United States. McNeil Consumer Healthcare initiated the recall after an internal review revealed that information about the presence of alcohol from flavoring agents was noted as an inactive ingredient listed on the package, but not on the front panel of the product. Certain flavoring agents contribute small (< 1%) amounts of alcohol. The recall was issued in order to update the labeling for these products.

The full recalled product list includes: Tylenol Cold Multi-Symptom Daytime 8 oz Citrus Burst Liquid - NDC 50580-257-08

Tylenol Cold Multi-Symptom Nightime 8 oz Cool Burst Liquid - NDC 50580-269-08

Tylenol Cold Multi-Symptom Severe 8 oz Cool Burst Liquid - NDC 50580-351-08

The affected product name and NDC numbers can be found on the product's front panel.

This recall is at the wholesale and retail level. 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. No action is required by consumers or healthcare providers and consumers can continue to use the product.
