Recall: Medicine Designed For Babies

It might be time to check your medicine cabinet.

There's a voluntary recall for over the counter cough and cold medicines for babies.

It comes after a pattern of misuse that's led to overdoses.

The recall is only for medicines for children under the age of two.

Infant medications by Dimetapp, Little Colds, Pediacare, Robitussin, Tylenol and Triaminic are involved in the recall.

    Good post, Amy. Only thing though, I wish your Dr. wouldn't have laughed about the aspirin, because it's probably next on the hit list...:)

    I discussed this with my family doctor. He said that it has been ok for the 30 years he has been in business, as long as you consult your DR, and follow the directions on the medications, there is no cause for mass hysteria. He joked the next thing they would be pulling would be aspirin.

    Sick and Tired of this stupid crap! Why should I suffer because others are stupid. We can't buy Sudafed without giving our whole life's story because of druggers, we can't give our kids cough syrup because of druggers, and God help you if you really have pain because you can't get painkillers because of the druggers. Why should we, the law abiding, cautious people have to suffer because of others stupidity. I'm fed up with being held responsible for other's ignorance. Not my fault, not my problem, tired of paying for it.

    Let's not stop at infant medicine. Recall everything that anyone can overdose on, since God forbid they read a label and follow directions...

    Doesn't it make more sense to go after the idiots who are using the meds to drug their kids instead of recalling them?? Keep them over the counter, but do the same thing to them that is being done to the cold meds that are used to make meth, make it so that the parents have to sign something to get them. That way they know who is buying them and in how much of an amount. The stiffen the penalty of OD'ing your kids on meds!!!! To those parents: If you can't handle having kids, let someone else raise them who won't drug them!!!!!

    It would be nice if the recall was explained specifically. Does it mean that all brands of Tylenol have been recalled (Tylenol Infant Drops for fever and pain)?
