Summary Box: Motrin IB recalled, may work slowly

MOTRIN HEADACHE: Johnson & Johnson issues its sixth Motrin recall in two years, this one for Motrin IB pain relievers that may not dissolve and start working promptly.

RETAIL RECALL: J&J is recalling packages from retailers, not consumers, because there's no safety concern. The pills went to the U.S. and Caribbean nations.

THE HISTORY: Since September 2009, J&J has had more than 25 recalls of prescription and nonprescription drugs, replacement hip joints, contact lenses and diabetes test strips. Reasons include contamination, nauseating odors and wrong levels of active ingredients.
