Kids Tylenol and Other Drugs Recalled

The Food and Drug Administration is currently investigating a health-care company after recalling more than 40 over-the-counter infant’s and children’s liquid medications.

McNeil Consumer Healthcare, based in Fort Washington, Pa. issued the recall late Friday after consulting with the FDA.  The recall involves children’s versions of Tylenol, Tylenol Plus, Motrin, Zyrtec, and Benadryl, because they do not meet quality standards.

According to McNeil and the FDA, some of the products recalled may have a higher concentration of active ingredient than is specified on the bottle.  Some may contain particles, while others may contain inactive ingredients that do not meet internal testing requirements.

The FDA advises to stop using the medicine as a precaution.  A health care professional should be consulted if a child has recently taken any of the recalled products and is exhibiting unexpected symptoms.

Details are available by telephone at 1-888-222-6036, or on the Web at
