Bayer recalls Alka-Seltzer Plus products over packaging issues

Mackenzie Bean - Print  | 

Bayer recalled some Alka-Seltzer Plus products after discovering ingredients listed on the package's front sticker may differ from the product's actual ingredients.

The recall applies to Alka-Seltzer Plus products sold at Walmart, CVS, Walgreens and Kroger stores nationwide after Feb. 9.

"The ingredients listed on the front sticker of the carton may potentially be different from the ingredients listed on the back of the carton," the FDA said in a recall alert. "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."

Bayer has not received any reports of adverse health events relating to the recalled Alka-Seltzer products and is offering customers refunds for all affected products.
