Children's Tylenol, other meds recalled



ATLANTA (CNN) -- A voluntary recall has been issued for dozens of over-the-counter drugs for children, including Tylenol and Motrin, because they don't meet quality standards.

"This recall is not being undertaken on the basis of adverse medical events," McNeil Consumer Healthcare said in a statement Friday.

"However, as a precautionary measure, parents and caregivers should not administer these products to their children."Some products in the recall may have a higher concentration of active ingredient than specified while others may have inactive ingredients that don't meet testing requirements, the company said.

The company said it issued the recall after consulting with the Food and Drug Administration. Drugs affected include children's versions of Tylenol, Tylenol Plus, Motrin, Zyrtec and Benadryl. They were made in the United States and distributed to Canada, the Dominican Republic, Dubai, Fiji, Guam, Guatemala, Jamaica, Puerto Rico, Panama, Trinidad & Tobago and Kuwait.
