McNeil Consumer and Specialty Pharmaceuticals announced a voluntary recall April 30 on some of its over-the-counter children’s medicines. These include some Tylenol®, Motrin®, Zyrtec® and Benadryl® products.

The company issued the recall because the products do not meet required standards. Some of the products may contain high levels of active ingredients, inactive ingredients that do not meet the company’s testing requirements or tiny particles. The recall is a precaution. The company suggests you not use affected product. Use generic products instead.

Be sure to check your cabinets at home and verify your product lot numbers. You can find a list of lot numbers and the product list at
