New Brunswick, NJ, United States (AHN) – Johnson & Johnson has been plagued by product recalls, and on Friday a unit of the pharmaceutical giant issued another one.
McNeil Consumer Healthcare said it is recalling some 574,000 bottles of a grape-flavored version of its liquid infant Tylenol because of problems with the device on the bottle that helps measure dosage.
The bottles come with a syringe and have a protective cover, or flow restrictor, at the top to help measure the right dose. McNeil says the restrictor has been pushed into the bottle in some cases when the syringe is inserted.
McNeil is one of three business segments for New Brunswick, NJ-based J&J. The latest recall is among about two dozen recalls issued in more than two years.
