Due to reports of serious side effects, McNeil, a division of Johnson & Johnson, has made four major recalls of over-the-counter products, including Tylenol, Motrin and Benadryl, in the past seven months. The most recent occurred May 1.
An article posted Tuesday on CNNmoney.com titled, “Tylenol recall: Serious side effects investigated,” states that the FDA has received at least 775 reports of people who have experienced serious side effects after taking these three drugs. The side effects include stomach pain, vomiting and diarrhea and in the more extreme cases hospitalization and disability, according to the article.
The recalls triggered investigations by the Food & Drug Administration, and now the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform has scheduled a May 27 hearing to investigate. Click here to Read More.
