Tylenol recalled by Johnson & Johnson

Johnson & Johnson said on Wednesday that it was recalling 9 million more bottles of its Tylenol painkiller because they did not adequately warn customers about the presence of trace amounts of alcohol used in the product flavorings.
The latest in a seemingly incessant string of J&J recalls involves three Tylenol Cold Multi-Symptom liquid products. More than 200 million packages of Tylenol and other consumer brands have been recalled over the past year due to quality control problems. “There is less than 1 percent alcohol in the flavoring, and this information is on the back of the bottles,” company spokeswoman Bonnie Jacobs said.

“But the information does not appear on the front of the bottles,” she added, an omission that sparked the recall of the affected lots from wholesalers and retail outlets.
The company said no side effects had been seen with the products and that customers who already had the formulations can continue to take them.
