Bayer recalls Alka-Seltzer due to packaging issues (again)

Mar 18, 2018

Bayer is voluntarily recalling Alka-Seltzer Plus packages that were sold in the U.S. at Walmart, CVS, Walgreens and Kroger after February 9, 2018, due to a labeling error.

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 is the second Alka-Seltzer recall in less than a year for Bayer. In August of 2017, Bayer issued a voluntary Class II recall of more than one million cartons of Alka-Seltzer due to confirmed customer compliants of small holes or cracks in the foil of blister packs. The recalled Alka-Seltzer was manufactured at a German plant.

Bayer has not confirmed the number of packages affected by this most recent recall.
