Major Children's Pain Reliever Recall: What You Need to Know

Health Check 3

motrinRecalls of kid's products are always scary for a parent to hear about. This latest is especially terrifying since it involves a popular pain reliever many of us turn to soothe our sick children.  Johnson & Johnson is voluntarily recalling nearly 200,000 bottles of Concentrated Motrin Infants' Drops because of potential contamination with tiny pieces of plastic.

Here's how to tell if you have a defective bottle.

The company is asking customers to stop using the Berry Flavor version of the product and instructing store owners to immediately pull it from shelves because it may contain specs of PTFE, a plastic used in Teflon coating. The half-ounce bottles in question can be identified by the following numbers: DCB3T01, DDB4R01, and DDB4S01.

The company first found the tiny particles during the manufacturing process and isn't sure how many bottles were actually tainted. But thankfully, they aren't taking any chances. If you happen to have this product in your medicine cabinet, call the company at 1-877-414-7709 for a full refund.

Have you ever used this product?
