Consumer Reports

Motrin and Dayquil recalled | (UPI) -- Federal regulators say Navajo Manufacturing is cooperating in the recall of a batch of Motrin IB and DayQuil LiquiCaps. The Food and Drug Administration gives the following information about the recalled over-the-counter repackaged products:

-- The Motrin IB (Ibuprofen tablets USP) was made in 200 mg tablets in two-count, single-dose packages. The manufacturer was McNeil-PPC Inc., of Fort Washington, Pa.

-- The DayQuil LiquiCaps (formulated as Acetaminophen 250 mg, Dextromethorphan HBr 10 mg and Pseudoephedrine HCI 30 mg), also in two-count unit dose packages were labled as Handy Solutions. These were produced by Procter & Gamble of Cincinnati.

The reason for the recall is a mix-up in the packaging. Packets of Motrin IB were incorrectly repackaged in hanging card units that say the product is the DayQuil product. The repackaging firm noticed the problem and contacted the FDA about initiating the recall.

Product found to not be as listed should be returned to the place of sale.
