Liquid Tylenol Recall

McNeil Consumer Healthcare has issued a voluntary recall of some its Children and Infant Liquid Tylenol Products that were manufactured between April of 2008 and June of 2008.

The Tylenol recall is a result of an inactive ingredient not meeting quality standards. The company pulled the product as a precautionary measure.

Children’s Tylenol, with the active ingredient is acetaminophen, has also faced an over-dose problem in regards to some of its Children’s and Infants Melt aways and Soft Chews. The design of the Melt away and Soft Chew packages include some blister voids that contain one tablet while some others contain two per void. Concern has been raised that the labeling on the carton and the back of the cavities that contain two tablets may lead the consumer to believe that two tablets provide a total of only 80mg when two-tablets are really a total of 160mg which, when consumed by a child, can lead to over-dosing. Although this problem is of much concern it is not the reason for the recent recall nor are the Melt aways or Soft Chew a part of this particular recall.
