According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Bayer is issuing a voluntary recall of some Alka-Seltzer Plus products.
The recent announcement states that packages are being recalled because ingredients on the front sticker may not match the actual product in the carton.
The Alka-Seltzer Plus products included in the recall are ones intended to temporarily relieve symptoms associated with cold and flu, such as cough, congestion, fever and/or mucus. These products were only sold in the U.S. at Walmart, CVS, Walgreens and Krogers after Feb. 9, 2018.
Consumers can identify the recalled products by checked the Bayer logo on the front of the carton. The FDA says that if the logo has an orange or green background, the product is included in the recall.
Bayer has notified retailers and is arranging for the return of the recalled products.
Consumers who purchased packages of Alka-Seltzer Plus that are being recalled should stop using the product and contact Bayer with questions, to report any issues experienced or for instructions about how to receive a refund. Call Bayer Consumer Relations at 1-800-986-0369.
