Recall of Children’s Over the Counter Medications

McNeil Consumer Healthcare announced yesterday it is voluntarily recalling a number of OTC children’s and infants’ liquid formulations including certain Tylenol, Motrin, Zyrtec and Benadryl products.

The company said the reason for the recall is that some of the products may not meet quality standards. Some of the products included in the recall may contain a higher concentration of active ingredients than specified; others may contain inactive ingredients that may not meet internal testing requirements; and others may contain tiny particles.

A press release issued by the company last night states, “This recall is not being undertaken on the basis of adverse medical events. However, as a precautionary measure, parents and caregivers should not administer these products to their children.”

The company urges consumers to discontinue use of the recalled products.
