Benadryl & Motrin for Kids Recalled

by The Kid's Doctor Staff

Drug maker Johnson & Johnson says it is voluntarily recalling about 4.8 million packages of children’s medicines due to “insufficiencies” in the manufacturing process.

J & J spokeswoman Bonnie Jacobs says the company is recalling 4 million packages of Children’s Benadryl allergy tablets and 800,000 bottles of junior-strength Motrin caplets.

The medicines are not dangerous and that the recalls are being done at the wholesale and retail levels, including drugstores.

Johnson & Johnson’s McNeil Consumer Healthcare unit says in a news release that the recall was ordered in consultation with the FDA for Children’s Benadryl Allergy Fastmelt Tablets in cherry and grape flavors.

The tablets were distributed in the U.S., Canada, Puerto Rico, St. Thomas, St. Martin, Barbados, and Belize, the company says.

The news release says the recall was ordered “after a review, conducted as part of McNeil’s comprehensive action plan, revealed insufficiencies in the development of the manufacturing process.”

It says “there is no indication that the recalled products do not meet quality standards.”

The McNeil unit says the recall includes all product lots of Junior Strength Motrin Caplets, 24 count, distributed in the U.S. It also says there is no sign the caplets don’t meet quality standards and that the recall, like the one for Benadryl, is not being initiated due to any reports of adverse events.

Products being recalled are Children’s Benadryl Allergy Fastmelt Tablets, cherry flavor, with a code number of 50580-347-18; Children’s Benadryl Allergy Fastmelt Tablets, grape flavor, code number 50580-348-18; and Junior Strength Motrin Caplets, 24 count, code number 50580-498-24.

Johnson and Johnson says consumers with questions should call 888-222-6036 Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Eastern time.
