I hardly ever give Dan Tylenol, but I always have it on hand. I replaced some long-expired product not too long ago, just in case.
Today I wake up to news that the makers of Children’s Tylenol have announced a voluntary recall of more than 20 children’s and infants’ liquid products.
Apparently, “select lots” of the products are being recalled due to a bacteria that was found in medicine manufactured between April and June 2008.
The recall was done on a warehouse and retail level. Products already packaged and on store shelves have been deemed safe. They say that no bacteria has not been found in any of the finished products – which really makes no sense to me. Does that mean that it takes nearly a year and a half after production for it to reach us?
The full list of affected products can be found at Tylenol.com. Consumers can find the lot numbers on the bottom of the box containing the product and also on the sticker that surrounds the product bottle.
Please check your stash, and call your pediatrician if you have any questions.
