IMPORTANT: Another McNeil Product Recall!

Jul 10, 2010 @ 3:11 PM MDT
The links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Remember the recalls that McNeil announced back in January and May of this year for select Tylenol, Motrin, Zyrtec, and Benadryl products?! Well, unfortunately, McNeil has announced yet another recall of 21 lots of over-the-counter medicines.

What items are being recalled?

Why is McNeil recalling these items?

This action is a follow-up to a product recall originally announced in January which was initiated following consumer complaints of a musty or moldy odor, which has been linked to the presence of trace amounts of a chemical called 2,4,6-tribromoanisole (TBA). The risk of serious adverse medical events is remote.

What should I do if I purchased these products and currently have them in my medicine cabinet?

Stop using the product and contact McNeil Consumer Healthcare for instructions on a refund or replacement. For these instructions, and information regarding how to return or dispose of the product, consumers should log on to the internet at or call 1-888-222-6036 (Monday-Friday 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Eastern Time, and Saturday-Sunday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Eastern Time).

What do I do with the recalled medication(s) that I currently have in my possession?
*Unless instructed otherwise, do NOT dispose of unused medicines by emptying them into your sink, toilet, or storm drain.
*Some states may have regulations regarding pharmacy or community take-back programs in which they may receive and dispose of returned unused drugs for patients. Contact your local pharmacy or local authority to determine if it participates in such programs.
*For information on disposing of over-the-counter medications, click here.

No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply add the post to your HIP List and access it at your convenience.
