The products in question are all liquid versions Tylenol, Motrin, Zyrtec and Benadryl. The complete list of affected products is below.
"As a precautionary measure, parents and caregivers should not administer these products to their children," reads a McNeil Consumer Healthcare release issued April 30.
The recall is voluntary, and not because the company has seen any "adverse medical events." Rather, the issue seems to be one of quality control. The company says that some of the products could have higher concentrations of active ingredients than specified on the packaging, contain inactive ingredients that don't meet quality control standards, or may contain tiny particles.
