Johnson & Johnson’s McNeil unit is voluntarily recalling 57 lots of Children’s Liquid Tylenol Products because they may have bacterial contamination.
According to the company, one of the inactive ingredients tested positive for Burkholderia cepacia or B. cepacia. However none of the bacteria was found in the finished product. The likelihood of a serious medical event is minimal, but after consulting with the FDA, the company agreed to recall the products.
The recalled brands include Children’s Tylenol Suspension 4 ounce Strawberry, Children’s Tylenol Pediatric Suspension 1 ounce Cherry, and Infant’s Tylenol Suspension Drops ½ ounce Grape.
Additional Information: Consumers should contact McNeil’s consumer call center at 1-800-962-5357 with further questions.
