(WRIC) – Bayer is set to voluntarily recall its Alka-Seltzer Plus packages sold at specific stores.
The packages will be recalled due to the fact that the ingredients on the front sticker may not match the product in the carton.
The recalled packages were only sold in the U.S. at Walmart, CVS, Walgreens and Kroger.
If the background of the Bayer logo on the lower left corner of the front of the carton is either orange or green, then the package is part of the recall.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration released an email regarding Bayer’s recall:
Bayer is voluntarily recalling Alka-Seltzer Plus® packages that:
- Were sold only in the U.S. at Walmart, CVS, Walgreens and Kroger (including Dillons Food Stores, Fred Meyer, Fry’s Food Stores, Ralphs, King Soopers and Smith’s Food and Drug) after February 9, 2018.
- Can be identified by checking the Bayer logo located on the lower left corner of the front of the carton. If the logo has an orange or green background, the product is included in the recall (please see attached photos).
The affected packages are being recalled because the ingredients on the front sticker may not match the actual product in the carton.
The ingredients listed on the front sticker of the carton may potentially be different from the ingredients listed on the back of the carton. This may lead consumers to ingest a product to which they may have an allergy or anaphylactic reaction, an ingredient which may be contraindicated for their medical condition or they intend to otherwise avoid. There may be potential for serious health consequences.
