(CNS): Following another recall by McNeil Consumer Healthcare Inc. relating to children’s and cold medicines, Foster’s Food Fair has pulled all Children’s Benadryl Allergy Fastmelt Tablets and Tylenol Cold Liquid Product from its shelves. The voluntary recall by McNeil Consumer Healthcare, Inc. was made in consultation with the U.S Food and Drug Administration after a review revealed insufficiencies in the development of the manufacturing process. There is no indication that the recalled products do not meet quality standards, and this recall is not being undertaken on the basis of adverse events.

The recall of the Tylenol Cold Liquid was initiated after an internal review revealed that information about the presence of alcohol from flavouring agents was noted as an inactive ingredient listed on the package, but not on the front panel of the product.

“Until Foster’s Food Fair IGA has a further correspondence from the manufacture on this affected product, moving forward, it will not be available. We are sorry forany inconvenience this may cause, however the safety of our customers is our top priority.
