On April 30, 2010 the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) together with manufacturer McNeil Consumer Healthcare issued a voluntary recall of specific children’s over-the-counter (OTC) medicines. It is important to note that the recall is specific for certain lots of Children’s Tylenol, Motrin, Zyrtec and Benadryl and that the medicines being recalled are all liquid, drops or syrup.

Tylenol, Motrin, Zyrtec, and Benadryl are safe medications – the recall is in effect for reasons of concentration or contamination.
