Perrigo Recalls Infant Pain and Fever Reliever

From the WebMD Archives

Safety concerns have prompted Perrigo to recall 18 batches of an over-the-counter pain and fever reliever for infants that is sold under brand names including Babies R Us and Care One.

The U.S.-wide recall covers batches of acetaminophen infant suspension liquid, 160mg/5mL sold in 2 oz. and 4 oz. bottles packaged with oral syringes. Some of the products may contain syringes without dose markings, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Using a syringe without dose markings could result in infants receiving an incorrect dose of the medicine, the agency said.

Consumers who discover that the product has a syringe without dose markings should not use the product. They should call Perrigo at 1-800-719-9260 for more information, the FDA said.
