A division of Johnson & Johnson has recalled 43 over-the-counter medicines made for infants and children, including liquid versions of Tylenol, Motrin, Zyrtec and Benadryl, as a result of deficiencies at the company’s manufacturing facility.
The Food and Drug Administration has advised parents and caregivers to stop using the affected products. According to Johnson & Johnson, some of the recalled products “may contain a higher concentration of active ingredient than is specified; others contain inactive ingredients that may not meet internal testing requirements; and others may contain tiny particles.” These problems can affect the “purity, potency or quality” of the medication.
If a child has experienced any unexpected symptoms as a result of taking the medication, federal officials advise parents to contact a doctor.
A complete list of the affected products can found at their website.
