|Johnson & Johnson's McNeil Consumer Healthcare division is voluntarily recalling all of its infant Tylenol in the U.S. due to complaints about the dosing syringe.|
A total of 574,000 one-ounce bottles of grape-flavored liquid Tylenol for infants are affected by the voluntary recall.
McNeil said it received a small number of complaints that the Infants' Tylenol SimpleMeasure dosing system was difficult to use. The system includes a dosing syringe, which is inserted into a protective cover at the top of the bottle to measure the proper dose. In some cases the cover, known as a flow restrictor, was pushed into the bottle.
McNeil said consumers can continue to use the product if the flow restrictor remains in place.
No adverse events were reported and the company said the risk of a serious event is remote.
