Additional information:
The US Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) reports the following Drugs are subject to this recall:

  • Acetaminophen Infant Suspension Liquid, 160 mg/5 mL, sold in 2-ounce and 4-ounce bottles with syringes in a box under store brand products including Babies R Us, Care One and others

Using an oral syringe without dose markings can result in inaccurate dosing, especially in infants who could mistakenly get too high a dose.
