Tylenol Voluntarily Recalls Children's Medicines

Concerned about bacterial contamination, Tylenol is recalling certain children’s liquid medication products manufactured during a certain period in 2008. While the risk of infection is low when the medicines are ingested, still: eww, bacteria.

One of the products’ inactive ingredients may be contaminated with B. cepacia. While an unused portion of the ingredient was contaminated, this doesn’t necessarily mean that all products are contaminated, but the company is recalling all products in the affected lots just in case. Visit Tylenol’s recall page for the relevant product list and lot numbers.
