Four brands of children’s medications — Children’s and Infants’ Tylenol, Children’s and Infant’s Motrin, Children’s Zyrtec, and Children’s Benadryl — are being voluntarily recalled by their manufacturer. The over-the-counter medicines are being recalled because some of the products do not meet required quality standards. If you have any of these medications, you should not use them. If you are not sure about which other medicine is safe for your child, you should contact your pediatrician or pharmacist.
The recall is not one the basis of adverse medical events, however, parents and caregivers should still not give the recalled products to infants or children. Some of the medicines may contain a higher concentration of active ingredient than is specified, while some may contain unnecessary particles, and others many contain inactive ingredients that fail to meet manufacturer testing requirements.
This is the fourth recall during the past seven months for McNeil-PPC, the division of Johnson & Johnson that manufactured the recalled products. They were manufactured in the United States and distributed in the US and nearly a dozen other countries.
