Johnson & Johnson Recalls Children’s Medicine Following FDA Report

McNeil Consumer Healthcare, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, is recalling certain over-the-counter (OTC) Children’s and Infants’ products distributed in the United States, Canada, Dominican Republic, Dubai (UAE), Fiji, Guam, Guatemala, Jamaica, Puerto Rico, Panama, Trinidad & Tobago, and Kuwait.

The recall follows a finding by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that certain Johnson & Johnson medications were contaminated with bacteria and may not meet quality standards. Some of the products included in the recall may contain a higher amount of active ingredient than is safe.

Consumers can contact Johnson & Johnson about the recall at 1-888-222-6036 and .  A list of the recalled drugs can be found on-line at .

Drug manufacturers such as Johnson & Johnson are required to meet safety criteria when manufacturing and distributing both OTC and prescription drugs.  Drug defects can result in serious injury and even death to consumers, and drug makers are responsible for negligence in the manufacturing, distribution and labeling of such prescription and OTC medications.
