Tylenol recalls child and infant medication

The makers of Tylenol announced a voluntary recall affecting some of the company's children's and infants' formulas.

The products were made between April and June of 2008.

Recalled are certain batches of Children's Tylenol and Tylenol Infant Drops.

Retailer Sam's Club sent out recall letters to more than 300,000 customers that bought the medicine.

The letter says Sam's pulled the bottles due to "the possibility of the presence of a microorganism in a single raw material".

"It's kind of scary because you don't know if you should buy it or not buy it. There's nothing else to give him. What's supposed to be safer than Tylenol?" said consumer Liz Hernandez.

The makers of Tylenol did not say how many bottles were pulled off the shelf or if anyone got sick from the medicine.

The recall was announced September 18th in a letter by McNeil Consumer Healthcare executive, Dr. Edwin k. Kuffner, to healthcare professionals.

Concerned consumers are encouraged to call the company at 1-800-962-5357.
