Massive Recall for Children’s Tylenol, Motrin, Benadryl, and Zyrtec

Johnson & Johnson has recalled over 40 of its childrens Tylenol, Motrin, Zyrtec, and Benadryl brands. Other medicines contained either the wrong amounts of active ingredients while the inactive ingredients didnt meet quality control standards. Over 40 customers had reported finding black specks in some medicines, but there is no information on what the black specks were. An investigation from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) found bacteria in some of the raw ingredients used at the Philadelphia manufacturing plant. No serious health risks have been linked to the recalled medicines. The FDA advises parents to stop giving these medicines to their children as a precaution and replace them with a generic brand alternative. Generic brands have been unaffected by the recall.
