Johnson & Johnson recalling all infant Tylenol

TRENTON, N.J. -- Johnson & Johnson is recalling all infant Tylenol on the U.S. market because some parents have had problems with newly designed bottles -- just introduced three months ago -- that the company had touted as a big improvement to make measuring the correct dose easier.
  
Instead, some parents have complained that a protective cover on the top of the bottles meant to limit how much liquid pain reliever could be drawn into a plastic syringe didn't work correctly. When those consumers inserted the plastic syringe, it pushed the protective cover, or flow restrictor, into the bottle.
  
J&J's McNeil Consumer Healthcare, plagued by about 25 product recalls since September 2009, said Friday that it is recalling all 574,000 bottles of a grape-flavored version of the liquid medicine on the market. The product, which was distributed nationally, was introduced in November.
