2010 Recall Tylenol Benadryl – Tylenol is no stranger to recalls, having been through them several times before. The Internet has been buzzing with news of the latest Tylenol recall. However, many of the news stories out there are misleading. It is only children’s Tylenol that is being recalled from the shelves, even though many sites have been reporting that there will be a recall of all types of Tylenol. Among the brands of Tylenol that have been recalled,there is Tylenol, Motrin, Zyrtec and Benadryl. While there has been no reported incidents since the recall began, there is an ingredient that was included in the medications that did not meet the FDA testing guidelines. McNeil Consumer Healthcare responded to the recall with a press release.

They have said that some of these medicines do not meet required quality standards. The recall is not coming on the heels of unfortunate medical events, and so far is completely precautionary. They warn that parents and caretakers should inspect their medicine cabinets to ensure that they do not have any of the listed types of Tylenol that are being recalled. They also provided consumers with a number of phone calls, including 1-888-222-6036 where consumers can call for further information on the recall.
The statement released by McNeil Consumer Healthcare:
McNeil Consumer Healthcare is initiating this voluntary recall because some of these products may not meet required quality standards. This recall is not being undertaken on the basis of adverse medical events. However, as a precautionary measure, parents and caregivers should not administer these products to their children. 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.

  1. I am sitting here with an almost empty bottle of recalled benadryl dye-free. We buy the name-brand because my daughter has severe allergies and we don’t want to take the risk of giving her a dye that she could react to.

    What makes it okay for them to publish the recall and say the product contains “inactive ingredients” that don’t meet requirements. What was in the Benadryl? I’ve been giving this to my 4 year old! Why don’t they have to say what was in it?
