Children’s Tylenol Recalled

Children's Tylenol

If you have children, check your medicine cabinets. Johnson & Johnson recalled several varieties of its Children's Tylenol painkiller. The drug's packaging contained confusing information that could lead to patients being given high doses of Children's Tylenol.

The recall includes all lots and flavors of Children’s Tylenol Meltaways (80 milligram dose) that come in bottles and blister packs; Children’s Tylenol SoftChews that come in 80 milligram blister packs; and Jr. Tylenol Meltaways that come in 160 milligram blister packs.

Due to drug information on the packaging, parents may mistakenly think that the two tablets of Children's Tylenol contain the recommended 80 milligram dose of active ingredient acetaminophen, when two tablets would provide double the recommended dosage.

According to medical authorities, doses of over 90 milligrams of acetaminophen can cause liver damage.
