Hear ye, hear ye, Mucinex is the latest recall in the long line of product recalls we are alerting our readers to! The makers of Mucinex recalled their liquid medications, including Mucinex Fast-Max Night Time Cold & Flu, Mucinex Fast-Max Cold & Sinus, Mucinex Fast-Max Severe Congestion & Cough, and Mucinex Fast-Max Cold, Flu & Sore Throat. This time the recall is due to a problem with the labels, with the wrong ingredients listed in the drug facts on the backs of the packaging. The wrong labels can keep consumers from understanding the risks and side effects associated with the ingredients, which could lead to health complications for some. For instance, someone who has liver problems may not be aware that some of these products contain acetaminophen.
If you have already purchased any of the aforementioned Mucinex products, you are being instructed to mix the liquid(s) with something like kitty litter or coffee grounds in order to make it unpalatable for anyone who might find it in the trash or a dumping ground. You may find the exact lots that are subject to the recall at the following Federal Drug Administration (FDA) internet site. There are also helpful phone numbers and hotlines at this site.
If you or a loved one has already taken the subject recall medications, with possible adverse health effects, first see a physician. Second, contact the caring professionals of Inserra & Kelley Law Offices to see whether you may be entitled to compensation.
