The FDA is investigating any other problems following the recall of more than 40 over the counter infant and children's liquid medicines.

McNeil Consumer Healthcare, issued a voluntary recall late Friday (April 30,2010) in the U.S. and 11 other countries after consulting with the FDA.

Recalled medications include children's versions of:

  • Tylenol
  • Tylenol Plus
  • Motrin
  • Zyrtec
  • Benadryl

According to McNeil and the FDA, some of these products may have a higher concentration of active ingredients than is specified on the bottle. Others may contain particles; while still others may contain inactive ingredients that do not meet internal testing requirements. 

No adverse medical affects have been reported.

Consumers are advised to stop using the medicine. Parents should consider alternative medications, such as generic versions.
