    Dec. 2, 2010 -- All lots of Mylanta liquid products and one lot of AlternaGel liquid have been recalled by Johnson & Johnson-Merck Consumer Pharmaceuticals.

    The recall affects only retail and wholesale sales of the product. The FDA says people can continue to use the products.

    There have been no reports of harm. The products are being recalled because their labels fail to declare small amounts of alcohol from flavoring agents.

    Because the products contain less than 1% alcohol, the FDA says they are unlikely to cause "either alcohol absorption or alcohol sensitivity-related events."

    Consumers with questions may call the manufacturer at 800-469-5268.

    The National Drug Code (NDC) and lot numbers for the recalled products are:
