Tylenol, Motrin, Benadryl Recall

As I'm sure everyone already knows, on April 30, 2010, McNeil Consumer Healthcare initiated a voluntary recall for TylenolMotrin, Benadryl, etc. because some of the products may not meet required quality standards.  I kept hearing there was a recall, but no one knew why or what to do.  

As a precautionary measure, McNeil cautioned parents and caregivers not to administer Infant's or Children's Tylenol,  Motrin, Zyrtec or Benadryl to their children, because "some of the products included in the recall may contain a higher concentration of active ingredient than is specified; others may contain inactive ingredients that may not meet internal testing requirements; and others may contain tiny particles."  While the potential for serious medical events is remote, the company advises consumers who have purchased these recalled products to discontinue use.
