Mylanta antacid in labelling recall

Dec. 3, 2010 at 8:05 PM   |   Comments

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J., Dec. 3 (UPI) -- The maker of Mylanta says it is recalling almost 12 million bottles from U.S. shelves because labels fail to note the alcohol content of some flavoring agents.

Johnson & Johnson said there was no consumer safety issue related to the recall and the antacid products can still be used as directed, ABC News reported Friday.

"Certain flavoring agents contribute small (less than 1 percent) amounts of alcohol," the company said on its Mylanta Web site. "It is unlikely that use of these products will cause either absorption or alcohol sensitivity related adverse events."

Twelve flavored variations of Mylanta and a companion product, Alternagel, are involved in the recall, the company said.
