In connection with the recent children’s Tylenol recalls, Blacksmith Brands, Inc. and the FDA are voluntarily recalling four kinds of PediaCare medicine that were produced at the same McNeil Consumer Healthcare Fort Washington, PA plant as the aforementioned recalled children’s Tylenol. The four medicines are as follows:
1. PediaCare Multi-Symptom Cold 4oz. UPC # 3 0045-0556-05 9;
2. PediaCare Long Acting Cough 4oz. UPC# 3 0045-0465-04 7;
3. PediaCare Decongestant 4oz. UPC# 3 0045-0554-04 8; and
4. PediaCare Allergy and Cold 4oz. UPC# 3 0045-0552-04 4.
In the meantime, while the plant where these medicines were produced has been temporarily closed for not meeting FDA standards, the manufacturer has made arrangements for these medicines to be produced at other plants and hopes to resume making shipments in July. At this time the recall is nothing more than a precaution, as there have been no reports of adverse reactions or effects to using the products listed. However, consumers are advised to discontinue use of the products immediately
