McNeil Pharmaceuticals, the manufacturer of Mylanta, along with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration recalled the product in 2014, according to the Mylanta website. The recall was due to an error in labeling of the product. The manufacturer omitted alcohol, one of the flavoring agents, from the label.
The 2014 recall was not due to adverse effects of Mylanta on consumers. Its purpose was to remove any of the mislabeled product from retail and wholesale shelves. It did not require consumers to return products they had already purchased. Instead, McNeil Pharmaceuticals advised consumers to continue using the product, according to Mylanta. The company lists the specific lot numbers and products the recall involved on its website.
