September 24, 2009: Recall of Children’s and Infants’ Tylenol

tylenol-logo McNeil Consumer Healthcare, the manufacturers of Children’s and Infants’ Tylenol, has issued a voluntary recall of these products due to the possibility of being contaminated with Burkholderia cepacia (B. cepacia).

A letter regarding the recall was sent to healthcare professionals on September 18, 2009.  A copy of the letter can be found on Tylenol’s website for professionals.

The bacteria were found after McNeil’s testing of a raw material.  The raw material is an inactive ingredient used in the recalled products.

According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC),  B. cepacia is a bacteria found in water and soil.  Symptoms of B. cepacia on people vary widely, ranging from no symptoms at all, to serious respiratory infections, especially in patients with Cystic Fibrosis.  Further information on the bacteria can be found on the CDC website.

The recalled Tylenol products are as follows.
