J&J Recalls Children's Benadryl, Motrin

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. ( TheStreet) -- Johnson & Johnson (JNJ - Get Report) plans to recall Children's Benadryl allergy tablets and junior-strength Motrin caplets because of manufacturing problems.

J&J's McNeil Consumer Healthcare division was recalling the products because of "insufficiencies in the development of the manufacturing process," the company said.

On its Web site, McNeil said the recall was at the wholesale and retail level. "No action is required by consumers or healthcare providers and consumers can continue to use the product," McNeil said.

Bloomberg reports 4 million packages of Children's Benadryl allergy tablets and about 800,000 bottles of junior-strength Motrin caplets would be recalled.

A notice dated Nov. 15 was posted on the McNeil Web site, but no press release was issued.

J&J has issued a number of recalls this year, the latest on Oct. 18, when McNeil announced the recall of one product lot of 50-count bottles of Tylenol eight-hour caplets in the U.S. and Puerto Rico because of a strange musty or moldy odor.
