The Perrigo Company, makers of several store-brand infant pain relievers and fever reducers, is recalling some of its liquid acetaminophen because the dosing syringe is missing the dose markings. The dosing syringe is used to measure how much medicine to give your baby. If the syringe is missing the dose markings, parents may give too much or too little of the medicine to their babies.
The recall affects some store-brand infants’ liquid acetaminophen (like generic Tylenol®) in 160 mg/5mL sold in 2oz and 4oz bottles. Some store-brands of infants’ liquid acetaminophen that are being recalled include Babies R Us, Care One, Rite Aid, Walgreens and more.
If you have the recalled infant acetaminophen and the syringe is missing the dose markings, stop using the product and contact Perrigo’s Consumer Affairs Department at (800) 719-9260. For a list of the recalled products and for more information, visit the Food and Drug Administration’s website.
