Important Recall Information

Just wanted to pass along an important recall notice from McNeil Consumer Healthcare regarding a voluntary recall of certain over-the-counter infants' and children's products.

After checking my cabinets, I found both my infants' Motrin and Tylenol products to be effected by this latest recall.

My Motrin was and of course I had been giving it to my son all last week because he had hand foot and mouth. It is so frustrating because you trust those companies to provide the best! Thanks for the info!

Why the recall?

From the McNeil Healthcare website:

McNeil Consumer Healthcare is initiating this voluntary recall because some of these products may not meet required quality standards. This recall is not being undertaken on the basis of adverse medical events. However, as a precautionary measure, parents and caregivers should not administer these products to their children. Some of the products included in the recall may contain a higher concentration of active ingredient than is specified; others may contain inactive ingredients that may not meet internal testing requirements; and others may contain tiny particles. While the potential for serious medical events is remote, the company advises consumers who have purchased these recalled products to discontinue use.

We went to Target this weekend to buy the Up and Up version because of the recall. Our pediatrician recommended it. Jillian is starting to teeth so I needed some generic Tylenol on hand pronto!!! I love the picture of GG in her swing, she looks so happy! I hope you both had a great weekend!

What did you end up doing? Just tossing or trying to get a refund of some sort?

I can't believe this keeps happening. Only generics for us from now on!
