Vick's Children's Botantical and Pure Zzz's Liquid Melatonin Market Withdrawal

July 29, 2022


The Procter & Gamble Company (P&G) is recalling all lots and date codes of Vicks Children’s Botanical and PURE Zzzs liquid melatonin products due to a regulatory classification issue. It is important to note, the affected Vicks Children’s Botanical and PURE Zzzs liquid melatonin products are safe and meet P&G’s quality standards. No other Vicks, ZzzQuil or PURE Zzzs products are impacted by this recall and may continue to be purchased and used as directed.

Following a routine FDA audit of P&G’s Personal Health Care dietary supplements, a discrepancy was discovered in the regulatory pathway these 2 product lines require. As a result, P&G is voluntarily withdrawing the applicable products while they follow the necessary procedures for regulatory compliance.

If you have any of the products listed below, they should be thrown away or returned to your local Big Y for a full refund.

The following products are sold at Big Y: 

Product Name  UPC Size Best By Date
ZZZQuil Pure Zzz’s Melatonin Liquid 32390004015 8oz All
Vick’s Children’s Botanicals Day 32390004105 4oz All
Vick’s Children’s Botanical’s Night 32390004106 4oz All
