Share this article:

McNeil Consumer Healthcare is voluntarily recalling seven lots of Infants' Tylenol Oral Suspension, 1oz Grape, distributed nationwide in the U.S. after consumer complaints about difficulty using the SimpleMeasure dosing system.

The affected lots are:  IL0U00, BIL0V00, BIL3500, BJL2D00, BJL2E00, BJL2T00, BJL2U00; UPC Code: 300450122308.

SimpleMeasure includes a dosing syringe, which inserts into a protective cover or "flow restrictor," at the top of the bottle to measure the proper dose. In some cases, the flow restrictor was pushed into the bottle when inserting the syringe. If the flow restrictor is pushed into the bottle, the product should not be used.

Infants' Tylenol is an OTC product indicated as a pain reliever/fever reducer. Children's Tylenol products are intended for children two years of age and older and remain available.
