Johnson & Johnson is pulling all infant Tylenol (574,000 bottles) off the U.S. market because parents have had problems with redesigned bottles.
Product: Infants’ TYLENOL Oral Suspension, 1 oz. Grape
Made By: Johnson & Johnson’s McNeil Consumer Healthcare unit and distributed nationwide in the United States.
Why it’s being recalled: The voluntary recall is a precautionary measure after the manufacturer recieved a small number of complaints from consumers who reported difficulty using the Infants’ TYLENOL SimpleMeasure dosing system. SimpleMeasure includes a dosing syringe, which a parent or caregiver inserts into a protective cover, or “flow restrictor,” at the top of the bottle to measure the proper dose. In some cases, the flow restrictor was pushed into the bottle when inserting the syringe. Children’s TYLENOL products are intended for children two years of age and older.
Customers can continue to use Infants’ TYLENOL as long as the flow restrictor at the top of the bottle remains in place.If not, they can request a refund by contacting McNeil at 1-888-222-6036 or http://www.tylenol.com.
