NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (WKOW) -- Johnson & Johnson is voluntarily pulling more than a half-million bottles of infants' Tylenol from shelves in the latest in a string of recalls.
The oral grape Tylenol, distributed nationwide, was recalled after a small number of complaints with the bottle's dosing system. The bottle comes with a syringe and a barrier that limits the flow to the correct dose, which some customers said was pushed into the bottle during use, according to a company statement.
Company officials say "No adverse events associated with this action have been
reported to date and the risk of a serious adverse medical event
Johnson & Johnson says customers can continue using Infants' Tylenol as long as the flow restrictor remains at the top of the bottle, Children's Tylenol, for kids more than two years old, is still available.
In the last two years, Johnson & Johnson has recalled hundreds of millions of packets of Tylenol, Motrin, Benadryl and other products due to foul odors, adulterated ingredients and bad labeling.
