Over the last 24 months, more than 14 million units of drugs and medical equipment have been recalled due to defect.
The latest was a February 17th announcement by the makers of Tylenol who recalled 574,000 bottles of infants’ Tylenol Oral Suspension. The recall is due to the product’s simple dosing measuring system that may fail and fall in to the suspension.
Although McNeil, a subsidiary of Johnson and Johnson and the makers of the product, claim that there are no adverse medical effects that come from the failure, they also advise discontinuing the product’s use if the simple dosing system fails.
McNeil is offering a refund to anybody who experiences the problem. Only seven lot numbers are affected and can be found by going to THIS WEBSITE:
