Ironically, after Barron’s touted Johnson & Johnson Inc. on its cover this weekend, the company has egg in its face with a massive recall of children’s medicines.  Affected products include varieties of Tylenol, Tylenol Plus, Motrin, Zyrtec and Benadryl. 

UltimateMama wants you to know that McNeil Consumer Healthcare, a division of Johnson & Johnson Inc (NSYE: JNJ), announced a voluntary recall of “all lots that have not yet expired of certain over-the-counter (OTC) Children’s and Infants’ liquid products manufactured in the United States and distributed in the United States, Canada, Dominican Republic, Dubai (UAE), Fiji, Guam, Guatemala, Jamaica, Puerto Rico, Panama, Trinidad & Tobago, and Kuwait,” according to its website. This recall was after consultation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

In yesterday’s press release 4/30/10, the company stated that “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”.
