Recalls – 12 MYLANTA® liquid products and 1 AlternaGEL® liquid product

OR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – November 29, 2010 – In consultation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Johnson & Johnson-Merck Consumer Pharmaceuticals, Co. (JJMCP) is recalling, from the wholesale and retail level, twelve MYLANTA® liquid products and one AlternaGEL® liquid product. JJMCP is conducting the recall in order to update the labeling for these products. The specific products involved, listed below, are being recalled in the United States and Puerto Rico.

JJMCP initiated the recall after an internal review revealed that information about the presence of alcohol from flavoring agents was not noted on the packaging. Certain flavoring agents contribute small (< 1%) amounts of alcohol. It is unlikely that use of these products will cause either alcohol absorption or alcohol sensitivity related adverse events.

This is a wholesale and retail level recall and 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.

Consumers with questions should call our Consumer Care Center at 1-800-469-5268 (available Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. ET and Saturday – Sunday, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. Eastern Time.)

The NDC codes and lot numbers for the recalled products can be found in the below list and on the bottle.
