McNeil recalls kids’ cold remedies


McNeil Consumer Healthcare has announced a recall of several popular over-the-counter remedies formulated for children and infants.

They include Tylenol, Motrin, Benadryl and Zyrtec, the company said. The recall applies only to liquid formulations designed for babies and children.

Uh, that’s scary enough.

McNeil said the voluntary recall is being done in conjunction with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration because of quality problems at a plant in the Dominican Republic. Some of the products may have too much of their active ingredients, some may have inactive ingredients that do not meet standards and some may contain tiny particles…

Consumers who have bought them are advised to stop using them.

No kidding!
