J&J’s McNeil division issues Motrin recall

    Johnson & Johnson’s McNeil division has issued another recall. This time it’s for Motrin.

    According to the Business Journal, 12 million bottles of the pain reliever have been recalled after product testing revealed the pills might not dissolve properly. There’s some good news in it for consumers, though. Bottles bought in stores aren’t being recalled — just ones sold to retailers.

    If you happen to have one of the bottles made between February 2009 and July 2011, it might take a bit longer for the Motrin to kick in.

    The recalled products were made in  Puerto Rico, not McNeils Fort Washington plant.
