Tylenol recalling children's medicine

September 24, 2009 4:04:00 PM PDT
The maker of Tylenol, McNeil Consumer Healthcare, is voluntarily recalling lots of Children's and Infants' liquid products made between April, 2008 and June, 2008 , because of concerns that one of the inactive ingredients did not meet internal testing requirements.

The recall does not affect Children's Tylenol Meltaways and Junior Strength Tylenol Meltaways. The voluntary recall applies only to select lots of Children's and Infants' Tylenol liquid products.

If you have any of the potentially affected products in your home and have questions you can contact the McNeil Consumer Call Care Center at 1-800-962-5357 (available Monday-Friday 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Eastern Time.)

The company advises that parents and caregivers who have given the product to their child or infant and have concerns should contact their child's health care provider.

The full list of affected products, as provided by McNeil Consumer, is below. You can find the lot numbers on the bottom of the box containing the product and also on the sticker that surrounds the product bottle.

If you have more questions, please contact the consumer call center at 1-800-962-5357. You can also find information at:
