Major Children's OTC Recall - Tylenol, Motrin, etc

I had not heard about this recall until today, and it seems like it just has not gotten around yet since the announcement was on April 30th. McNeil, makers of Children's Tylenol, Children's Motrin, Children's Zyrtec, and Children's Benadryl is recalling select products. You can view the full list on their recall site. It appears to be a fairly extensive recall, so be sure to check your products! You will need the NDC number on the front of the box (on my Children's Tylenol) of the product.

Our bottle of Children's Tylenol was on the recall list. I choose to request a coupon when the product becomes available again, but you can also request a refund. If you have multiple products, you will be able to request a coupon or refund for each product.

On the FAQ page it states that the recall is not for medical reasons, so while you should discontinue use of the recalled products, there should not be any adverse effects on your children.

Hopefully this will all be cleared up quickly!

  1. Thanks for the heads-up, Beth Ann. Recalls are so scary! Chewable ibuprofen (namebrand AND generic) was recalled around Thanksgiving, and they have YET to be put back on the shelves. Frustrating, no doubt, but better safe than sorry!


What do you think? I love hearing from readers!
