PediaCare Children's Drugs Recalled:

"June 1, 2010 -- More children's medicines -- four products sold under the PediaCare brand name -- have been recalled.
All four of the over-the-counter medications were made in Johnson & Johnson's troubled McNeil plant in Pennsylvania. Numerous problems at the plant, including drugs containing incorrect dosages and unsafe manufacturing conditions, led to the April 30 recall of popular child and infant versions of Tylenol, Motrin, Benadryl, and Zyrtec .
The products recalled over the Memorial Day weekend are sold by Blacksmith Brands. They include:
  • PediaCare Multi-Symptom Cold 4oz. UPC # 3 0045-0556-05 9
  • PediaCare Long Acting Cough 4oz. UPC# 3 0045-0465-04 7
  • PediaCare Decongestant 4oz. UPC# 3 0045-0554-04 8
  • PediaCare Allergy and Cold 4oz. UPC# 3 0045-0552-04 4
Although no injuries have been reported from use of these products, the manufacturer warns parents to stop using the drugs and to throw away any product they may have purchased.
Parents with questions, or those who would like a free product replacement coupon, may call Blacksmith at 888-474-3099."


Please make sure to tell your friends and family members to discard the recalled product as well. Be safe and look out for others:)
Best Wishes!
