Popular medication recalled from store shelves

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has initiated a voluntary recall of all product lots of Children’s BENADRYL, and Allergy FASTMELT Tablets, in cherry and grape flavors, that were distributed in Belize,  the United States,  Barbados,  St. Martin, and St. Thomas and all product lots of Junior Strength MOTRIN Caplets, twenty-four count, that were distributed in the United States. It is a wholesale and retail level recall. Agents in Belize are James Brodies and Company and the recall of voluntary nature so healthcare providers and consumers can continue to use the product. Apparently a review, conducted by McNeil’s Comprehensive Action Plan, showed insufficiencies in the development of the manufacturing process. There is no indication that the recalled products do not meet quality standards, nonetheless anyone using the product is asked to be informed of the situation.

    Not Surprise that this story only have one comment at the time i am reading it, and with wikileak’s
    latest release of documents on US clandestine activities against it’s friends and foes, not surprising either. I guess child abuse is ok if it’s the governments are perpetrating the crime. Then
    they wonder why the youths are behaving in such devious manner. When you combine poverty
    along with medication or food lace with mine control chemicals it is surly a recipe for self destruction. YHWH EL Olam

    you know the rest of the story. So you either so some Morality by standing up for Right or
    lose your integrity while Shuckin’ and jivin. YHWH El Shaddai
