Mucinex liquid recalled

A label error has resulted in a recall of over-the-counter Mucinex liquids. Foster’s Food Fair and several pharmacies in Cayman carry the cold and flu medication.

The items include Mucinex Cold & Sinus Liquid and the company’s Cold, Flu & Sore Throat Liquid products. The bottle label lists all active ingredients but may not have the correct drug facts label on the back.

A Foster’s spokesman said the company pulled all the products from its store shelves. Reckitt Benckiser, the wholesaler, initiated the recall.

A press release from Foster’s states the incorrect label does not give consumers information about risks associated with taking the drug, particularly for people with liver problems who take Acetaminophen, commonly sold as Tylenol.
