According to The New York Times, Johnson & Johnson is recalling its entire U.S. supply of Infants’ Tylenol. The company decided to recall the medication after parents complained about the bottle’s new design, which was supposed to ensure accurate doses. When parents inserted the syringe in to the bottle, the protective cover was accidentally pushed into the bottle. There have been no reports of serious side effects from the Infants’ Tylenol.
Johnson & Johnson is recalling 574,000 bottles of grape-flavored Infants’ Tylenol. The medicine was sold at stores and wholesalers throughout the country. Johnson & Johnson has stated that consumers can still use the medication as long as the protective cover stays in place. The company has not stated when the product will return to the market.
Johnson & Johnson has had several products recalled recently including medications, artificial hips and contact lenses.
