Children’s Tylenol/Motrin/Zyrtec Recall

Tuesday, May 4th, 2010

I just found out about this recall.  You may want to check your medicine cabinets too.

Recalled Medicines:

Reason for the Recall:

McNeil Consumer Healthcare is initiating this voluntary recall because some of these products may not meet required quality standards. This recall is not being undertaken on the basis of adverse medical events. However, as a precautionary measure, parents and caregivers should not administer these products to their children. Some of the products included in the recall may contain a higher concentration of active ingredient than is specified; others may contain inactive ingredients that may not meet internal testing requirements; and others may contain tiny particles. While the potential for serious medical events is remote, the company advises consumers who have purchased these recalled products to discontinue use.

If you have these Medicines:

  • Do not return it to the retail store where you purchased the items;
  • Fill out this FORM to either get a refund (average price of medication) or a coupon for a replacement when it is ready.  They will ask for the NDC and Lot # – this information is on the label.

More Questions?

Consumers can contact the company at 1-888-222-6036 and also at www.mcneilproductrecall.com. Parents and caregivers who are not sure about alternative pediatric health treatment options should talk to their doctor or pharmacist and are reminded to never give drug products to infants and children that are not intended for those age groups as this could result in serious harm.
