McNeil Consumer Healthcare Initiates Voluntary Recall of Certain Over-The-Counter (OTC) Products

Following on from previous recall alerts, McNeil Consumer Healthcare, a Division of McNEIL-PPC, Inc. is recalling certain lots of Tylenol 8 Hour, Tylenol Arthritis Pain, Tylenol Cold, Tylenol Allergy, Tylenol Sinus, and certain lots of Benadryl, Sudafed PE, and Sinutab products in consultation with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). These products were manufactured at the McNeil plant in Fort Washington, PA prior to April 2010, when production at the facility was suspended. The company is initiating the recall as a precautionary measure after a complete review of past production records found instances where equipment cleaning procedures were not satisfactory or that cleaning was not correctly documented. It is very unlikely that this impacted the quality of these products. This recall is not being issued because of adverse events.
