We told you about a recall by Pillsbury due to plastic particles in cinnamon roll containers.
Now Johnson & Johnson is recalling 200,000 bottles of Motrin Infants formula due the same risk of tiny plastic particles being in the medicine.
J&J’s McNeil unit announced Friday that the recall affects three lots of its popular Motrin Infants’ Drops Original Berry Flavor.
The company warned that the medicine may be contaminated with specs of PTFE, a plastic also used in Teflon coatings. No illnesses or injuries have been reported as of yet.
The company says it’s not sure if the recalled bottles contain the particles, which were found in another product during the manufacturing process.
McNeil Vice President Ed Kuffner told the AP, ‘‘From our perspective, during the manufacturing process at the third party supplier, that’s when the particles got into the ibuprofen."
The recalled half-ounce bottles can be identified by their lot numbers: DCB3T01, DDB4R01 and DDB4S01
Parents should stop using the affected medicine and call the company for a refund at 1-877-414-7709.
J&J has had a string of recalls involving brands like Tylenol, Motrin and Zyrtec. That included the recall of more than 136 million children and infant over-the-counter medicines in April 2010, the largest recall of its kind.
