Mylicon Drops Recalled

Nov 11, 2008 | Parker Waichman LLP

Mylicon Drops, a popular remedy for infant gas, are being recalled because they may contain pieces of metal.  Johnson & Johnson, the maker of Mylicon Drops, said in a press release that the chances for injury is low, but decided to issue the recall as a precaution.

Infants’ Mylicon drops are sold over-the counter, in retail stores and pharmacies, as an anti-gas medicine to relieve the discomfort of infant gas frequently caused by air swallowing or by certain formulas or foods.

The Mylicon Drops recall involves roughly 12,000 units of Infants’ Mylicon Gas Relief Dye free drops (simethicone-antigas) non-staining sold in 1 oz. plastic bottles that were distributed after October 5, 2008 nationwide.  The two lots included in the recall are:

Product Code 71683791111-1, Lot # SMF007, Exp. Date 09/10
Product Code 71683791111-1, Lot # SMF007, Exp. Date 09/10

Consumers can find the lot numbers on the bottom of the box containing the product and also on the lower left side of the sticker on the product bottle.

According to Johnson & Johnson, most  medical events that could occur as a result of the  defective Mylicon Drops are expected to be temporary and resolve without medical treatment. Parents who have given the product to their infant and are concerned should contact their health care provider immediately.

Consumers who purchased the recalled Mylicon Drops  should immediately stop using the product and contact the company at 1-800-222-9435 (Monday – Friday, 8:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. EST) or via the internet at www.mylicon.com for instructions regarding how to dispose of the product and request a replacement or refund.

The recall does not affect any Original Infants’ Mylicon Gas Relief products (1/2 oz. or 1 oz. size) or Infants’ Mylicon Gas Relief Dye Free drops non-staining (1/2 oz. size).
