The Food and Drug Administration says that McNeil Consumer Healthcare is issuing a voluntary recall of some infant and childrens’ liquid medications due to some quality, purity and potency problems. Commissioner of Food and Drugs Margaret A. Hamburg, MD said on the FDA web-site:
“We want to be certain that consumers discontinue using these products and that they know what to do if they have concerns about a specific product. While the potential for serious health problems is remote, Americans deserve medications that are safe, effective and of the highest quality. We are investigating the products and facilities associated with this recall and will provide updates as we learn more.”
The FDA noted that the recall is not due to adverse medical events but as a precautionary measure.
McNeil Consumer Healthcare is recalling:
- 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
