McNeil Recall

As a mom, I know our kids health is our top priority. I was quite upset to learn of a recall from McNeil Pharmaceutical Company. While that name might not ring a bell, infant and children's Tylenol, Zyrtec, Motrin and Benedryl should!

STOP giving it to your children NOW! According to their website, it is a voluntary recall for it being too strong, or other "particles" that are not needed are in it. I really don't know what that means, do you? (Can you tell I'm a little frustrated??) Due to recent allergies being so high, my kids have been taking Zyrtec and Benedryl every night. What is the icing on the cake is I stocked up on them the other week when Walgreens gave a register reward back with them!

HERE is an article about the recall. HERE is the website to learn more about the recall and the affected products. They don't say what they are going to do about it. However, they are taking phone calls and emails. I just sent my email off to them tonight!

Here is the list of the recalled products (click to make larger or view it on their website):

The bad part is that the "particles" are actually metal pieces. Lovely how they down grade the word a little to make it sound less nasty.
