Recall of OTC Cold/Flu Medicine Due to Mislabeling Initiated
RB (formerly Reckitt Benckiser) announced a voluntary recall of certain lots of liquid bottles of over-the-counter (OTC) Mucinex Fast-Max due to mislabeling of drug facts.
The recall of some Mucinex lots of Fast-Max Night Time Cold & Flu, Mucinex Fast-Max Cold & Sinus, Mucinex Fast- Max Severe Congestion & Cough, and Mucinex Fast-Max Cold, Flu & Sore Throat was initiated after a report of incorrect labeling from a retailer was confirmed. These medications have the correct labeling on the front of the bottle and list all active ingredients, but they may not have the correct corresponding drug facts label on the back of the product. This mislabeling could cause the consumer to be unaware of the side effects and/or risks associated with the ingestion of certain product ingredients like acetaminophen, dextromethorphan, guaifenesin, phenylephrine, and/or diphenhydramine and their undeclared levels.
RB is urging consumers to responsibly dispose of any unused product from the recalled lots and contact their clinician if they experience any problems that may be related to taking or using this drug product. A list of all recalled lots are available on the Mucinex website or by calling (888) 943-4215.
