J&J Recalls Mylanta and Alternagel Liquid Products

Washington, DC: 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, a detailed list of which is available through the link 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 (less than 1%) amounts of alcohol. It is unlikely that use of these products will cause either alcohol absorption or alcohol sensitivity related adverse events.
