Infants’ Tylenol is being recalled due to complaints from consumers about the SimpleMeasure dosing system.
McNeil Consumer Healthcare, the maker of Infants Tylenol, issued the recall in cooperation with the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) yesterday. McNeil is owned by the Johnson & Johnson company.
In a statement, McNeil said that it was recalling approximately 574,000 bottles, of Infants’ TYLENOL Oral Suspension, 1 oz. Grape. The Infants’ Tylenol was distributed throughout the United States.
McNeil also said the voluntary recall is being done as a precaution. That they received only a small number of complaints from consumers saying they had trouble using the SimpleMeasure dosing system. The complaints involved the protective cover, or ‘flow restrictor’, at the top of the bottle being pushed into the bottle when the dosing syringe was inserted. The company stated that there were no adverse medical events reported, and that they believe the risk of a serious medical event is remote. They also noted that Children’s Tylenol, designed for children two years and older, is not affected by this recall and remains available.
The Infants’ TYLENOL Oral Suspension 1oz. Grape product being recalled has the UPC code 300450122308 and one of the following lot numbers: BIL0U00, BIL0V00, BIL3500, BJL2D00, BJL2E00, BJL2T00, BJL2U00.
The company is advising that if the ‘flow restrictor’ is pushed into the bottle, the Infants’ Tylenol should not be used. They also said that refunds can be requested at www.tylenol.com or by calling 1-888-222-6036.
