Tylenol recalls some children's medications

By Jen Eyer

From MedPageToday this morning:

The maker of Children's Tylenol has recalled several varieties of the product after discovering possible contamination with a Gram-negative bacteria, Burkholderia cepacia.

...The company said no bacteria have been found in finished products, but the bacteria were detected in an examination of the bulk materials used to make the medicine.

...The recall covers 21 flavors of its pediatric acetaminophen product, including Children's Tylenol Suspension 4 oz. strawberry, Children's Tylenol Pediatric Suspension 1 oz. cherry, and Infants' Tylenol Suspension Drops ½ oz. grape, manufactured from April 2008 through June 2008.
