PediaCare Added to Kids’ Product Recalls

submitted on June 1, 2010 by HouTex in "Products / Gadgets"

PediaCare kids’ allergy, cold and cough medicines are being recalled after serious quality problems were found during government inspections of manufacturing facilities.

They are being pulled from store shelves on concerns that their quality may be sub-par, and parents are urged to stop using the medicines immediately, but the recall was not initiated as a result of any consumer reports of adverse events and no consumer complaints have been received about the safety or purity of the products.

The products were manufactured by McNeil Consumer Healthcare, a Johnson & Johnson company, which previously issued recalls on liquid Tylenol, Motrin, Benadryl and Zyrtec in May due to concerns that they could be contaminated with bacteria, contain tiny metal particles or contain the wrong amounts of an active ingredient.

    Again?! I have enough to worry about as a parent. I wish these companies could just get their acts together.

    Thanks for the heads-up HouTex.

      There is a serious problem with their quality control. According to other sources, Johnson & Johnson may have been trying to conceal the previous recalls by hiring a separate company to buy its potentially-risky Motrin IB products to quietly remove them from store shelves without having to make a public announcement.
