The Latest Children’s Tylenol Recall

February 17, 2012

Johnson & Johnson decided to recall all infant Tylenol in the U.S. market because consumers were having problems using the redesigned bottles that were introduced three months ago.  The company originally thought the new design was a better safety improvement, making measuring doses easier. 

Consumers complained that a protective cover on the top of the bottles didn't work correctly. The cover is supposed to limit how much of the liquid pain and fever reducer can be drawn into a plastic syringe. However, when the syringe was inserted, it pushed the protective cover, or flow restrictor, into the bottle.

Johnson & Johnson is recalling 574,000 bottles of grape-flavored, liquid Infants' Tylenol from stores nationwide.

The new infant Tylenol bottle comes with a plastic syringe that's to be inserted into the flow restrictor at the top to help measure the right dose. The syringe has an opening in the tip but no needle. Consumers are to insert the tip of the syringe into the flow restrictor, turn the bottle upside down and then draw out the right dose using the milliliter markings on the syringe. That's then squirted into the baby's mouth.
