(FORT WASHINGTON, Pa.) — McNeil Consumer Healthcare Division announced Wednesday it is recalling batches of three of its Motrin products, citing problems with how the drugs dissolve.
The voluntary recall affects certain lots of Motrin IB 24-count coated caplets, Motrin IB 24-count coated tablets and Motrin IB 24+6 count coated caplets. After testing product samples, the drugmaker found that “some caplets may not dissolve as quickly as intended when nearing their expiration date.”
McNeil notes that the affected products do not pose a safety concern for consumers — those who continue taking the drugs may just experience a delay in relief.
The drugmaker says it is recalling the products “out of an abundance of caution,” and that “consumers do not need to dispose of or return the product.”
