Recall Alerts

McNeil Consumer Healthcare has recalled several over the counter medicationsincluding certain types of liquid Tylenol, Motrin, Zyrtec and Benadryl.

The recall is due to some of the medications having higher concentrations of ingredients than what was indicated on the label and others may contain small particles or did not meet their internal quality standards.

If you have any bottles of these medications at home, you can go check to see if they are on the recall list at http://www.mcneilproductrecall.com or http://www.fda.gov/medwatch.  On the manufacturer’s site, there is information about refund requests or coupons for replacement bottles.

7 million drop-side cribs have been recalled due to babies suffocating by getting stuck between the mattress and crib. 21 babies have died this way. If you own a drop-side crib, you can check the recall list at www.cpsc.gov.

Even if your crib is not on the recall list, periodically check for missing, broken or loose parts to ensure your baby is safe.

Please call the Consumer Product Safety Commission at 1-800-638-2772 if your baby has experienced this type of incident.
