Johnson & Johnson has announced a recall of three children's cold and flu medications.
According to the New Jersey-based company, the recall involves Children's Benadryl Allergy Fastmelt Tablets, Junior Strength Motrin Caplets, and Extra Strength Rolaids softchews. The healthcare giant said the recall is at a wholesale and retail level. The company said it found unspecified problems related to Benadryl and Motrin products.
The Rolaids were recalled after consumer reports that the softchews had an unusual texture. J&J said the texture was traced to crystallized sugar.
The company recalled a total of 4 million packages of cherry and grape Benadryl tablets, 800,000 Motrin caplets, and 71,000 caplets of Extra Strenght Rolaids.
The company said the medicine still works, despite the problems, and no further action is required on the consumer level.
