baby product recall
If you haven’t heard yet, Johnson & Johnson is recalling all infant Tylenol from the shelves in the U.S. market. There seems to be a flaw with the design of the bottle’s dosing system. Their newly redesigned bottle was introduced 3 months ago and it was suppose to make it easier for parents to measure the dose of the medicine.
Here is a video on how the new design bottle is suppose to work.
Unfortunately, 17 parents or caregivers have complained that the flow restrictor on the top of the bottles is pushed in when the syringe is inserted. This is the reason for the recall. Nothing is wrong with the medication, just the measuring tool.
WHAT SHOULD YOU DO IF YOU HAVE THIS INFANT TYLENOL AT HOME?
Here is what the manufacturer says:
“Parents can continue to use Infants’ TYLENOL® provided the flow restrictor at the top of the bottle remains in place. If the flow restrictor is pushed into the bottle, parents and caregivers should not use the product.”
If you want a refund, get the details at Tylenol’s website.
