Incorrect labeling prompts OTC medicine recall

The mishap means that patients don't have the correct information about side-effects, drug interactions, and active ingredients.

RB, formerly Reckitt Benckiser, has voluntarily recalled bottles of Mucinex, because the over-the-counter medication may not have the correct corresponding drug facts label on the back.

The products are correctly labeled on the front of the bottle and lists all active ingredients, the company said.

According to News for Shoppers, 1.5 million bottles are involved in the recall.

This mislabeling could cause the user to be unaware of side effects and/or risks associated with the ingestion of certain product ingredients which include Acetaminophen, Dextromethorphan, Guaifenesin, Phenylephrine, and/or Diphenhydramine.

The recall includes liquid bottles of Mucinex Fast-Max Night Time Cold &Flu, MucinexFast-Max Cold & Sinus, MucinexFast-Max Severe Congestion & Cough, and MucinexFast-Max Cold, Flu & Sore Throat.
