Infant Tylenol Recall

February 17, 2012 Updated Feb 17, 2012 at 1:53 PM CST

Fort Washington, PA (Northland's NewsCenter) -- Johnson & Johnson's McNeil Consumer Healthcare Division of McNEIL - PPC is recalling approximately 574,000 bottles nationwide of Infants Tylenol Oral Suspension, 1 oz. Grape.

The recall was issued after receiving a small number of complaints from consumers who reported difficulty using the Infants Tylenol SimpleMeasure dosing system.

The SimpleMeasure system includes a dosing syringe at the top of the bottle to measure the proper dose. When inserting the syringe, a protective cover or "flow restrictor" at the top of the bottle is to measure the correct dose.

In some cases, the flow restrictor was pushed into the bottle when inserting the syringe. If the flow restrictor is pushed into the bottle, consumers should not use the product.

No adverse events associated with this action have been reported.

Children's Tylenol products are intended for children two years of age and older. It is an over-the-counter product used as a pain reliever/fever reducer.
