McNeil Consumer Healthcare Division of McNEIL-PPC Inc. (McNeil) has informed its wholesale customers in the United States that it is voluntarily recalling one lot of IMODIUM® Multi-Symptom Relief, 18 Caplets due to a packaging issue that may have impacted a limited number of blister units in this lot. The product is being recalled at the wholesale level only, and not from consumers or from store shelves, as there are no safety concerns or adverse events related to the reason for the recall. The lot number (CMF023) for the recalled product can be found on the side of the product box (see photo below).
The product is packaged on blister cards with six caplets in blister units on each card. An internal quality review discovered the potential for a limited number of blister units to have dents with a small pinhole or tear. Improvements have been made to the packaging line to help prevent the issue from arising again.
You may continue to use the product if there is no hole or tear in the blister unit. If you take a caplet packaged in a damaged blister unit you may not experience the full benefit of the product as intended. As indicated on the product box, you should not use the product if the blister unit is open or torn. If you have any questions or concerns, please call our Consumer Care Center at 1-888-222-6036 (available Monday-Friday 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Eastern Time).
