Company recallling some children's medicine

The Food and Drug Administration says it is
investigating after a health-care company recalled more than 40
over-the-counter infant's and children's liquid medications.
McNeil Consumer Healthcare issued the voluntary recall late
Friday in the United States and 11 other countries after consulting
with the FDA. The recall involves children's versions of Tylenol,
Tylenol Plus, Motrin, Zyrtec and Benadryl, because they don't meet
quality standards.
In a statement Saturday, the FDA says it was reviewing
procedures at McNeil. The company is based in Fort Washington, Pa.,
and appears to be the sole source of the problems.
The FDA says the potential for serious medical problems is
"remote," but it is advising consumers to stop using the
medicine.
