FORT WASHINGTON, Pa., Nov. 24 (UPI) -- The manufacturer of Tylenol liquid cold medications says it is recalling the products over concerns about label ingredient information.

In consultation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, McNEIL-PPC Inc. is recalling three Tylenol Cold Multi-Symptom liquid products at the wholesale and retail levels in order to update their labeling, the company said on its Web site Wednesday.

Information about the presence of alcohol from flavoring agents was noted as an inactive ingredient listed on the package, but not on the front panel of the product as required, the company said.

Certain flavoring agents contribute small amounts of alcohol, less than 1 percent, the company said.

The three products being recalled are Tylenol Cold Multi-Symptom Daytime Citrus Burst liquid, Cool Burst liquid and Nighttime Cool Burst liquid.

Consumers wanting information can call 1-888-222-6036.
