Children's Medicine - Product Recall

I just thought I would re-post this information for those of you who might not know. There has been a recall on Mcneil Products.  If you have children's medications in your medicine cabinet, you might want to read the following information.  I am off to check my medicine cabinet.  I have at least one (and in some cases more than one) of each of these products in my cabinet. 

"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."

Products include:

INFANTS' TYLENOL® AND CHILDREN'S TYLENOL® PRODUCTS

INFANTS' MOTRIN® AND CHILDREN'S MOTRIN® PRODUCTS

CHILDREN'S ZYRTEC® PRODUCTS

CHILDREN'S BENADRYL® PRODUCTS
