Tylenol announced on September 24 that it was recalling Children’s Tylenol and over 20 other children’s and infant’s liquid products due to bacteria found in the medicines manufactured between April and June 2008.
The bacteria is believed to be in the inactive ingredients in the products. While the product as manufactured met all specifications, the recall was carried out at the warehouse and retail levels. Products currently on the store shelves have been deemed to be safe by the manufacturer, McNeil Consumer Healthcare.
Among the recalled children’s products are Children’s Tylenol Cold MS Suspension 4 oz. Grape, Children’s Tylenol Plus Cough & Runny Nose 4 oz. Cherry, and Infant’s Tylenol Suspension Drop 1 oz. Grape.
While the scare is definitely present, we applaud the company from proactively recalling these potentially dangerous products once the bacteria was discovered. If you have any questions about the medicines that were recalled or the effect of the recall, please call 800-961-5357. You can also check the lot number on any products you may have around your home and compare it to the list found on the Tylenol website.
