Children's Cold Medicine, Tylenol, Motrin Recalled

Over-the-counter cold medicine for children is being recalled for
"quality" issues.

McNeil's Consumer Healthcare explains that the recall is not "...on the
basis of adverse medical events".

Apparently there are higher concentrations of "active ingredient" than
specified and in some products and "inactive ingredients" in other
producrs that don't meet testing requirements...I don't understand how
they would be able to discover that (serious) error unless there was
some type of medical reaction adverse or otherwise...

In any event, you'll find the list of medicines and contact information
in the article below...

(CNN) -- A voluntary recall has been issued for more than 40
over-the-counter drugs for children, including Tylenol and Motrin,
because they don't meet quality standards.

"This recall is not being undertaken on the basis of adverse medical
events," McNeil Consumer Healthcare said in a statement Friday.
"However, as a precautionary measure, parents and caregivers should not
administer these products to their children."

"Some products in the recall may have a higher concentration of active
ingredient than specified while others may have inactive ingredients
that don't meet testing requirements, the company said.

The company said it issued the recall after consulting with the Food and
Drug Administration. The affected brands include: Tylenol Infants'
Drops, Children's Tylenol Suspensions, Children's Tylenol Plus
Suspensions, Motrin Infant Drops, Children's Motrin Suspensions,
Children's Zyrtec Liquids in Bottles and Children's Benadryl Allergy
Liquids in Bottles.

The drugs were made in the United States and distributed to Canada, the
Dominican Republic, Dubai, Fiji, Guam, Guatemala, Jamaica, Puerto Rico,
Panama, Trinidad & Tobago and Kuwait.
