Mylanta liquid recalled for undisclosed alcohol

Johnson & Johnson-Merck Consumer announced a recall of twelve products from its liquid Mylanta product line and one liquid AlternaGEL product. This recall is being conducted in order to update the labeling for these products. Johnson & Johnson-Merck Consumer initiated the recall after an internal review revealed that information about the presence of alcohol from flavoring agents was not noted on the product packaging. Certain flavoring agents contribute small (<1%) amounts of alcohol. It is unlikely that use of these products will cause either alcohol absorption or alcohol sensitivity related adverse events.

The products being recall include:
  • Mylanta Original (aluminum hydroxide, magnesium hydroxide, simethicone) (5 fl oz)
  • Mylanta Regular Strength (aluminum hydroxide, magnesium hydroxide, simethicone) Original, Mint, and Cherry flavors (12 fl. oz)
  • Mylanta Maximum Strength (aluminum hydroxide, magnesium hydroxide, simethicone) Original, Mint, and Cherry flavors (12 fl. oz)
  • Mylanta Maximum Strength Original (24 fl. oz)
  • Mylanta Ultimate Strength (aluminum hydroxide, magnesium hydroxide) Mint and Cherry flavors (12 fl. oz)
  • Mylanta Supreme Tasting with Calcium (calcium carbonate, magnesium hydroxide) Cherry flavor (12 fl. oz)
  • Mylanta Supreme Tasting with Calcium Cherry flavor (24 fl. oz)
  • AlternaGEL (aluminum hydroxide) (12 fl. oz)
