Tylenol manufacturer recalls many popular medications due to chemical contamination. Are you affected?
McNeil Healthcare, the makers of Tylenol, announced that it is recalling several of the most popular over-the-counter medications due to contamination with the chemical TDA.
The California injury attorneys at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis and Leslie have compiled this list of the products recalled to help you determine if you are affected by the recall. If you own any of the medications on this list, go to the McNeil Healthcare website and scroll down until you see a picture of your medication. Then check the NDC code number, the UPC number, and the lot number. These numbers are on both the external packaging and on the bottle itself. The UPC number may not be on the bottle, but if the NDC and lot number match, your drug is affected by the recall.
If you own one of these products, stop using it immediately. Call McNeil Healthcare’s Consumer Care Center at 1-888-222-6036 to find out how to get a refund or replacement. They can also help if you have questions about whether your product has been recalled.
If you have already taken the medicine, don’t panic. The chemical is not life threatening, although it may cause stomach discomfort.
