McNeil OTC Product Update
St Louis, October 19, 2010 - Following on from McNeil Consumer Healthcare's voluntary recall of certain over-the-counter products in January and subsequent recall updates in June and July, Dierbergs Markets is removing another item that has been voluntarily recalled by McNeil.
Tylenol 8-Hour Caplets, 50 ct
ITEM #: 877-6220
LOT: BCM 155
This item has been pulled because, like the items included in the previous recalls, it was found to have trace amounts of a chemical called 2, 4, 6-tribromoanisole (TBA). This can result from the breakdown of a chemical that is sometimes applied to wood that is used to build wood pallets that transport and store product packaging materials. The health effects of this chemical have not been well studied, but no serious events have been documented in the medical literature.
A complete list of recalled products can be found at McNeil's Product Information Page. Questions can also be addressed by calling the company at 1-888-222-6036.
Dierbergs customers who purchased any of the products named in the recall can return them to any Dierbergs location for a full refund.
