Maker Of Children’s Tylenol Expected To Plead Guilty Over Recall


McNeil Consumer Healthcare, a unit of Johnson and Johnson that manufactures over-the-counter infant’s and children’s liquid medications Children’s Tylenol and Children’s Motrin, has agreed to plead guilty to a federal criminal charge stemming from the sale of products that were found to contain metal particles – including nickel, iron and chromium.

According to WPDE, the details of this case that center around the 2010 incident came to light when court documents were unsealed on Tuesday.  Prosecutors claim that the manufacturer failed to take immediate steps to fix the problem. Neil Consumer Healthcare has agreed to pay $25 million to settle the suit.  Due to an alert issued by the Food and Drug Administration, the potential for serious medical problems is remote.

This kind of thing terrifies me.  Having a sick child is a difficult issue to deal with, but knowing that there are readily available medications that can truly help can make it easier on you and the kid.  We have used both of the products to help keep Deacon’s fever down.  Casting the company and brand that parents trust in an untrustworthy light throws the “sick child” battle plan into disarray.  Luckily, it looks like the quality control issues are under control.
