Johnson & Johnson recalls Infants’ Tylenol

Johnson & Johnson has issued a recall of 574,000 bottles of  Infants’ Tylenol, citing problems with the product’s dosing system.  The medication is supposed to be administered orally using a syringe.  The company has received complaints that a flow restrictor at the top of the bottle was being pushed into the bottle when inserting the syringe.” A problem with the flow restrictor makes it difficult for parents and caregivers to administer the proper dosage to infants.

No injuries from excessive doses have been reported from the design flaw; however, a number of complaints from parents prompted the company to issue the voluntary recall. Consumers may continue to use the the product if the flow restrictor remains in place at the top of the bottle.
