    Recall of Kids' Tylenol, Motrin, Zyrtec, Benadryl

    43 Liquid Child/Infant Products Recalled by Johnson and Johnson's McNeil Division

    Editor's Note: This recall happened in 2010. The original list of recalled products is listed at the bottom of the article. 

    May 2, 2010 -- Manufacturing defects have led to the recall of 43 child and infant liquid formulations of Tylenol, Motrin, Zyrtec, and Benadryl by McNeil, a division of Johnson & Johnson.

    No injuries or deaths have yet been reported. The voluntary recall follows an April 19 FDA inspection of a McNeil plant in Fort Washington, Pa. that uncovered "manufacturing deficiencies," the Washington Post reports.

    The company says the chances of injury from one of the recalled products are "remote." Yet consumers are warned not to use the recalled products.

    "Some of the products included in the recall may contain a higher concentration of active ingredient than is specified; others may contain inactive ingredients that may not meet internal testing requirements; and others may contain tiny particles," a company news release states.

    If children who have taken the recalled products have unusual symptoms, parents are urged to contact a health care professional.

    Parents should not give children adult formulation of the medications. Alternative brands of the products, including generic medications, are available. Parents who have questions about alternative treatments should consult their child's pediatrician.

    Recalled products may be returned for a refund or exchanged for a fresh product once manufacturing issues have been resolved.

    McNeil did not say how many units were being recalled, but the number likely is huge. Recalled products were distributed in the U.S., Canada, Dominican Republic, Dubai (UAE), Fiji, Guam, Guatemala, Jamaica, Puerto Rico, Panama, Trinidad & Tobago, and Kuwait.
