Infant and Children Meds Recall
McNeil Consumer Healthcare, working with the FDA, has voluntarily recalled infant and children’s liquid medicines because of manufacturing deficiencies possibly affecting quality, purity or potency. Certain liquid products for children and infants were part of the recall, including some Tylenol, Motrin, Zyrtec and Benadryl products. The FDA recommends using generic versions of the products and asking your pharmacist for more details. They caution parents against dispensing adult strength medicine to their children. Commissioner of Food and Drugs Margaret A. Hamburg indicated that the potential for serious health problems associated with the recall is remote, but consumers deserve the highest quality.
