Typo Prompts Johnson & Johnson Recall

Photo Courtesy - Getty Images(NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J.) -- Johnson & Johnson is recalling certain packages of Sudafed because of a typo.

The recall involves Sudafed’s extended-release 24 Hour tablets. The product is fine – consumers can still use it – but the problem is a misprint on the product’s box. There's a double negative that reads "do not not divide, crush, chew or dissolve the tablet."

The internal packaging has the proper instructions but Johnson & Johnson and the Food and Drug Administration were concerned enough about the typo to recall 600,000 packages.
