Grape-flavored Infants’ Tylenol Recalled

Posted on February 17, 2012

According to news sources, a recall has been issued for about 574,000 bottles of grape-flavored infants’ Tylenol after it was found that the faulty protective cover dosing device was not working as intended.

The company, Johnson & Johnson’s McNeil Consumer Healthcare unit, announced the recall after receiving reports regarding difficulty with the products Simply Measure dosing system. There have reportedly been instances where the “flow restrictor” ended up being pushed into the bottle when the syringe is used. The recalled Tylenol bottles include those with a UPC code 300450122308. There have been no reports of adverse effects to date. The new bottle design was recently introduced to increase safety by simplifying the dosage measurement process.

Those with the recalled bottles should stop using them immediately and contact the company at 888-222-6036 for a full refund amount.
