KinderFarms, LLC has announced a recall of all lots of KinderMed Infants’ Pain & Fever (oral suspension) and KinderMed Kids’ Pain & Fever (oral suspension) due to potential health risks associated with acetaminophen instability. The products were manufactured by a major U.S.-based OTC pharmaceutical manufacturer.
The recall includes all lots of KinderMed Infants’ Pain & Fever (2 fluid ounces/59 mL), (Acetaminophen – 160 mg per 5 mL), Oral Suspension, and KinderMed Kids’ Pain & Fever (4 fluid ounces/118 mL), (Acetaminophen – 160 mg per 5 mL), Oral Suspension. The decision to recall the products was made out of an abundance of caution after ongoing testing revealed that some product lots did not meet the required specifications and may pose a health risk.
Consumers who purchased either of these two products are advised to stop using them immediately and return the product to the place of purchase for a full refund. Acetaminophen instability can cause acute adverse health effects at higher doses, including abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, or jaundice. However, there have been no reports of serious adverse events associated with either product to date.
KinderFarms has confirmed that the products are available nationwide in drugstores, supermarkets, direct delivery services, national retailers, and online through major e-commerce sites. Consumers with questions about the recall can contact the company at email@example.com or 800-996-2930.
