Washington, DC (WLTX) - Bayer is recalling some Alka-Seltzer Plus products nationwide because of a labeling error.
The recalled bottles were sold after February 9, 2018, at retailers including CVS, Walgreens and Walmart. The product is intended to temporarily relieve symptoms associated with cold and flu, such as cough, congestion, fever and/or mucus.
The ingredients listed on the front sticker of the carton may potentially be different from the ingredients listed on the back of the carton. This may lead consumers to ingest a product to which they may have an allergy or anaphylactic reaction, an ingredient which may be contraindicated for their medical condition or they intend to otherwise avoid. There may be potential for serious health consequences.
The recalled product can be identified by checking the Bayer logo located on the lower left corner of the front of the carton. If the logo has an orange or green background, the product is included in the recall.
Bayer is notifying retailers electronically and by certified mail and is arranging for return of all recalled product.
Customers are asked to stop using the product if it came in a mislabeled package and can contact Bayer at 800-986-0369 on weekdays for a refund or for more information.
