A MUST READ FOR ALL PARENTS!!

(CNN) — A voluntary recall has been issued for more than 40 over-the-counter drugs for children, including Tylenol and Motrin, because they don’t meet quality standards.

“This recall is not being undertaken on the basis of adverse medical events,” McNeil Consumer Healthcare said in a statement Friday. “However, as a precautionary measure, parents and caregivers should not administer these products to their children.”

“Some products in the recall may have a higher concentration of active ingredient than specified while others may have inactive ingredients that don’t meet testing requirements, the company said.

The company said it issued the recall after consulting with the Food and Drug Administration. The affected brands include: Tylenol Infants’ Drops, Children’s Tylenol Suspensions, Children’s Tylenol Plus Suspensions, Motrin Infant Drops, Children’s Motrin Suspensions, Children’s Zyrtec Liquids in Bottles and Children’s Benadryl Allergy Liquids in Bottles.

The drugs were made in the United States and distributed to Canada, the Dominican Republic, Dubai, Fiji, Guam, Guatemala, Jamaica, Puerto Rico, Panama, Trinidad & Tobago and Kuwait.

More details are available by visiting McNeil’s Web site.
