Some of the products recalled may contain a higher concentration of active ingredients than specified on the bottle; others may have inactive ingredients that do not meet testing requirements or may contain tiny particles. Although the FDA says that any serious side effects are not likely and no incidents have been reported, a recall was issued to be on the safe side.
Parents are advised to call a health-care professional if your child has recently taken any of the products and has unexpected symptoms of any kind. The FDA also advises parents to substitute these child medications with other brands or generic versions.
Parents should NOT give kids ANY dosage of adult-strength medications as a replacement for children's-strength medicines.
If you are unsure about replacement medicines or alternative health-treatment options, call your pediatrician for guidance.
