Children’s Drug Recall – Very Important!

Children’s and Infant’s Drug Recalls Announced – Tylenol, Benadryl, Zyrtec, and Others.  There are several children’s medications that have been recalled because they do not meet quality standards.  Among the pharmaceuticals recalled include the children’s versions of Tylenol, Zyrtec, Motrin, Benadryl, and Tylenol Plus.

McNeil Consumer Healthcare issued the recall, and noted that some of the medications have more of the active ingredient than the bottle states, or fillers that don’t meet internal quality standards.  No deaths or illnesses have been associated with use, but the company is urging parents to not give the affected medications to their children.

The McNeill Web site notes that “For additional information, including affected NDC numbers, consumers should visit our website www.mcneilproductrecall.com or call 1-888-222-6036 (Monday-Friday 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Eastern Time, and Saturday-Sunday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Eastern Time). Any adverse reactions may also be reported to the FDA’s MedWatch Program by fax at 1-800-FDA-0178, by mail at MedWatch, FDA, 5600 Fishers Lane, Rockville, MD 20852-9787, or on the MedWatch website at www.fda.gov/medwatch.”

The recalled medications were made in the US.  Other countries such as Canada, Kuwait, Trinidad and Tobago, the Dominican Republic, Panama, Jamaica, Dubai, Fiji, Guam, and Puerto Rico could have the drugs on their shelves as they were distributed from McNeill in the US to the listed countries.

Parents who are unsure about alternative treatments for their children are advised to speak with their doctor or pharmacist.
