The Consumer Healthcare Division of McNEIL-PPC, Inc. (McNeil) is voluntarily recalling certain lots of MOTRIN IB 24-count COATED CAPLETS, MOTRIN IB 24-count COATED TABLETS, and MOTRIN IB 24+6-count COATED CAPLETS from retailers. The products were distributed in the United States, Puerto Rico, Bahamas, Fiji, Belize, St. Lucia, and Jamaica. This is not a consumer-level recall, which means that consumers do not need to dispose of, or return, the product. There is no safety concern if consumers continue taking the product in accordance with its label; however, it is possible there may be a delay in experiencing relief. This action is not being undertaken on the basis of adverse events.
The manufacturer, McNeil, is recalling these products because testing of product samples showed that some caplets may not dissolve as quickly as intended when nearing their expiration date. Out of an abundance of caution, McNeil is recalling all the listed products, since there is a chance they could experience a similar problem as they approach expiration. If you have any questions or concerns, please call McNeil Consumer Call Center at 1-888-222-6036 (available Monday-Friday 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Eastern Time). More information about this recall and the specific lot numbers involved can be found at: https://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm284942.htm?source=govdelivery
