Children's medicines recalled

October 11, 2007

 A division of Johnson and Johnson is recalling 14 cough and cold medicines for infants because of the danger of overdose.

The company's McNeil Consumer Healthcare unit is voluntarily withdrawing over-the-counter medicines from the following brands:

    • Dimetapp
    • Little Colds
    • Pediacare
    • Robitussin
    • Triaminic
    • Tylenol

Data show that when misused the medicines can lead to overdose especially in children younger than two.

Johnson and Johnson says the products are safe at recommended doses and stress that parents read labels carefully.

For more information, the company recommends that parents visit the website www.otcsafety.org
