New McNeil Recall: Many Products for Infants and Children

McNeil is recalling all unexpired lots of certain Tylenol drops and suspensions, Motrin drops and suspensions, Zyrtec liquids, and Benadryl liquids. It appears that chewable forms of these products are not affected by the recall. For a complete list of the recalled products, view the FDA press release. Below is the reason for this large recall. Contact McNeil at 1-888-222-6036 or visit the McNeil recall website.

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.”
