In preparation for a possibly bad cold / flu season, we went a few weeks ago and purchased a whole bunch of cold supplies. Wouldn’t you know it that today Tylenol issued a recall and at least two of the things I bought are listed?!? It doesn’t sound like it’s very serious and they’re not sure there’s a problem with the products listed, but better safe than sorry… Sonya
Here’s more information from the Tylenol website:
You may have heard that McNeil Consumer Healthcare (the makers of TYLENOL®) is voluntarily recalling certain lots of Children’s and Infants’ TYLENOL® liquid products that were manufactured between April, 2008 and June, 2008. All products manufactured met internal specifications. However, the company is implementing this recall because during this period, an unused portion of one inactive ingredient did not meet all quality standards. Therefore, as a precautionary measure, it was decided to recall all Children’s and Infants’ TYLENOL® liquid products listed below, which were made during this time.
…..Consumers can find the lot numbers on the bottom of the box containing the liquid product and also on the sticker that surrounds the product bottle. The lot numbers of the affected products are listed below.
These actions do not apply to Children’s TYLENOL® Meltaways and Junior Strength TYLENOL® Meltaways. The voluntary recall applies only to select lots of Children’s and Infants’ TYLENOL® liquid products.
