Infant Acetaminophen Recall Issued

A company that produces and sells an acetaminophen product for infants under numerous brand names, this week issued a “voluntary recall” of the products due to the possibility that some of the packages sold might have an oral dosing syringe without dose markings.

The Perrigo Company is recalling 18 batches of its acetaminophen infant suspension liquid, 160 mg/5 mL, sold in 2 oz. and 4 oz. bottles with syringes in a box under the following store brand names sold in California: Babies R Us, Equaline, Equate, Kroger, Walgreen and Rite Aid. Other brand names can be found on the FDA website: www.fda.gov/medwatch/report.htm

In a press release, the company stated that oral dosing devices with dose markings are safe to use following label instructions. Consumers whose purchased oral dosing devices without dose markings, should not use the product and call Perrigo’s Consumer Affairs Department, toll free, 1-800-719-9260.
