The cough and cold season is here, and we have important information to share about infants’ and children’s cough and cold medicines. These medicines are generally recognized as safe and effective when used as directed. Most parents use these cough and cold medicines appropriately.
However, we have become aware of rare instances of misuse leading to accidental overdose, especially in children under the age of two. Therefore, we are voluntarily withdrawing the following concentrated cough and cold medicines from the market:

Concentrated Tylenol® Infants’ Drops Plus Cold
Concentrated Tylenol® Infants’ Drops Plus Cold & Cough
PediaCare® Infant Dropper Decongestant
PediaCare® Infant Dropper Long-Acting Cough
PediaCare® Infant Drops Decongestant (containing pseudoephedrine)
PediaCare® Infant Dropper Decongestant & Cough
PediaCare® Infant Drops Decongestant & Cough (containing pseudoephedrine)

If you have these products in your household, please discontinue use in children under the age of two. These actions do not apply to cough and cold medicines labeled for children aged two and above.
Additionally, these actions do not apply to Infants’ and Children’s Tylenol® and Motrin® pain relievers and fever reducers. When used as directed, these products are safe and effective.
As always, it is important to medicate carefully. Always use the exact dosage device that comes with the medicine. Use the medicine only as directed. And keep all medicines out of the reach of children.
Whenever you have questions about how to treat your child’s cough and cold symptoms, call your doctor.
