J&J Recalls Millions of Bottles and Packages of Consumer Medicines


Washington, DC: In consultation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), McNeil Consumer Healthcare, Division of McNEIL-PPC, Inc. is voluntarily recalling, at the wholesale level, certain lots of TYLENOL 8 Hour, TYLENOL Arthritis Pain, and TYLENOL upper respiratory products, and certain lots of BENADRYL, SUDAFED PE, and SINUTAB products distributed in the United States, the Caribbean, and Brazil.

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 an extensive review of past production records found instances where equipment cleaning procedures were insufficient or that cleaning was not adequately documented. It is very unlikely that this impacted the quality of these products.

McNeil Consumer Healthcare is also initiating a voluntary recall of certain product lots of ROLAIDS Multi-Symptom Berry Tablets distributed in the United States, in order to update the labeling. The company initiated the recall after determining that the product labeling does not include the language "Does not meet USP" as required by regulation.

Both of these recalls are being initiated at the wholesale level. No action is required by consumers or healthcare providers and consumers can continue to use the product. These actions are not being undertaken on the basis of adverse events.

McNeil identified the inadequacies as part of a thorough, product quality and process assessment of all McNeil produced products.
