The FDA is investigating a health-care company following its recall of more than 40 over-the-counter infant's and children's liquid medications. McNeil Consumer Healthcare, a unit of Johnson & Johnson, issued the voluntary recall last night for children's versions of Tylenol, Tylenol Plus, Motrin, Zyrtec, and Benadryl. The possible manufacturing deficiencies include too-high doses of active ingredients.
The FDA said it was reviewing procedures at McNeil, which appears to be the sole source of the problems. It called the potential for serious medical problems "remote," but it advised consumers to stop using the medicine as a precaution.
