More recalled medicine

I wonder if Johnson & Johnson will continue to see sales drop due to these massive recalls. It certainly makes me nervous as a parent. I think I have the Benadryl too. I thought I was finished dealing with all the medicine recalls.

FROM NBC: Johnson and Johnson has recalled more children's medicine. The medication was manufactured at the company's McNeil Consumer Healthcare Plant in Fort Washington, Pennsylvania plant before it temporarily closed because of other problems.

You may remember -- this was the same plant that recalled thousands of children's and infants' Tylenol and other medications because of quality issues. The latest recall includes about 4-million packages of children's Benadryl tablets and about 800-thousand bottles of junior-strength Motrin caplets.

The company says there have been no reports of problems with the product and they do not pose any safety risk to consumers. You do not need to return them to the store if you already have them.
According to the company, the products were made without rigorous manufacturing practices.
