Wednesday, McNeil Consumer Healthcare announced Wednesday that they have added five lots to the Benadryl and Tylenol recall stating that they were “inadvertently omitted from the initial recall action” of January 15.
The additional lots include four lots of 100-count Benadryl Allergy Ultratab Tablets and one lot of the 50-count Extra Strength Tylenol Rapid Release Gels.
The Johnson and Johnson over the counter drugs were sold in the US, Bermuda, Puerto Rico, Trinidad and Tobago. The additional lot numbers that have been recalled are ASA202, AJA008, ADA194, ABA022 and ABA264.
According to McNeil’s statement the “risk of adverse medical events is remote.”
Consumer reports and complaints of serious side effects have been reported for similar products and by the US Food and Drug Administration. For more information on that, click here.
The products were recalled because of an unusual odor, according to McNeil.
