Child Drug Recall

Last week I told you about a huge recall concerning Graco and Simplicity cribs. Now comes word of yet another major recall involving children’s products.

A part of Johnson & Johnson is recalling certain children’s over the counter liquid medications. The Food and Drug Administration says the problem centers around manufacturing deficiencies, which may affect the quality of the product.

The products recalled include certain lots of infants’ and children’s Tylenol, Motrin, Zyrtec and Benadryl products because some of them may have more of an active ingredient than specified. The products were manufactured by Johnson & Johnson’s McNeil Consumer Healthcare division. Other products involved in the recall may have foreign particles such as manufacturing residue.

Although the chance for serious harm is small, McNeil officials are urging parents not to give the products to children. The specific products in question involve Tylenol Infants Drops, Children’s Tylenol Suspensions, Infants’ Motrin Drops as well as Benadryl Allergy liquids.

This is not the first time McNeil has been cited. Back in January, the company was forced to recall hundreds of lots of adult and children’s products after receiving reports of moldy smells coming from over-the-counter drugs made in Puerto Rico.
