OTC infants’ and children’s liquid products recalled, including Tylenol and Motrin

On April 30, McNeil Consumer Healthcare announced the voluntary recall of specified over-the-counter (OTC) infants’ and children’s liquid products, including Benadryl®, Motrin®, Tylenol® and Zyrtec®. No adverse medical events have been associated with this recall but parents and caregivers are advised to discontinue use and properly dispose of these products as a precautionary measure.

The recall was issued in response to recently identified manufacturing deficiencies which may affect a drug’s quality, purity or potency. Products may contain inappropriate concentrations of active ingredients, inactive ingredients that fail to meet testing requirements, or tiny particles.

Recalled products include all unexpired lots of the following:
• Children’s Benadryl Allergy Liquids in Bottles
• Children’s Motrin Suspensions
• Motrin Infants’ Drops
• Tylenol Infants’ Drops
• Children’s Tylenol Suspensions
• Children’s Tylenol Plus Suspensions
• Children’s Zyrtec Liquids in Bottles
