Nationwide PediaCare Medicine Recall



On the heels of the major Tylenol and Motrin recall comes another children's medicine recall. The FDA announced in a press release that all lots of four PediaCare medicines have been recalled (see photos of the labels here). The FDA says the recall was made as a precautionary measure because the factory where the medicines are made has not met the "FDA's current good manufacturing practice requirements."

No injuries or complaints from using the medicine have been reported, but PediaCare advises discontinuing the use of the following products:

1. PediaCare Multi-Symptom Cold 4oz. UPC # 3 0045-0556-05 9
2. PediaCare Long Acting Cough 4oz. UPC# 3 0045-0465-04 7
3. PediaCare Decongestant 4oz. UPC# 3 0045-0554-04 8
4. PediaCare Allergy and Cold 4oz. UPC# 3 0045-0552-04 4

The company has compiled a list of FAQs about the recall, including where to find the NDC and lot numbers and expiration date on bottles, and how to get a replacement coupon for when the medicine becomes available again.
