Health Canada reminds Canadians who have concerns about these products to consult with their health care practitioner or contact the company at 1-888-222-6036 or visit: www.mcneilcanada.com.

McNeil's website has the following info: http://www.mcneilcanada.com/en/download ... r+info.pdf

I'm confused, because why are they recalling if they say consumers can still use the product?

Sounds like they found aproblem with a batch and were able to stop it before it was placed on the shelves.

We normally don't get wind of these too often.

It was only a particular lot number - it was the one that we had just received, so chances are most of the affected product has already been pulled. Check with your pharmacy, they have the info.
