Past kid-related product recalls
Recall expanded: July 8, 2010
Johnson & Johnson is again expanding a recall of over-the-counter medications because the products give off an odor than can cause vomiting and sickness. The most recent expansion of the recall includes 21 lots of drugs including Tylenol and Motrin IB. The odor is caused by a chemical used to treat wooden pallets that transport and store medication packaging materials.
In June, the company had expanded the recall to include Benadryl Allergy Ultratablets and one lot of Extra Strength Tylenol.
Last November, the company initially recalled some Tylenol Arthritis Caplets. The recall expanded in December, and again in January.
