Infant Cold Medicines Pulled Off Stores Shelves Because of Concern About Accidental Overdoses

Infant Cold Medicines Pulled Off Market
Less than two weeks after the Food and Drug Administration warned of potential risks to infants posed by infant and toddler cold medicines, drugmakers pulled the medications off store shelves.

Products aimed at children 2 and under are being removed from stores because of concern about accidental overdose.

Cold medicines being withdrawn include:
  • Johnson & Johnson Pediacare Infant Drops
  • Tylenol Concentrated Infants Drops
  • Wyeth’s Dimetapp Decongestant Infant Drops
  • Novartis’ Triaminic Infant & Toddler Thin Strips
  • Prestige Brands Holdings’ Little Colds Decongestant Plus Cough
