The FDA-backed, company-announced recall on children’s medicine 2010 has been issued. The recall on children’s medicine 2010 includes a large number of over-the-counter liquid children’s medicine. If you have any of the recalled medicine, you can get a small loan of a coupon or refund for the product. Either way, the FDA and McNeil Healthcare suggest that you discontinue use of these medicines.

Why the recall on children’s medicine 2010

The recall on children’s medicine 2010 was initiated by McNeil Consumer Healthcare – the manufacturer of the medicine. The recall has been announced for three major reasons. First, some of the medicines have “a higher concentration of the active ingredient” then is on the label. Second, some of the medicines have “inactive ingredients that do not meet internal standards” for quality. Third, some of the recall on children’s medicine 2010 is because there are small particles in the medicine.
