Children's pain medication recalled due to ingredient instability
If you have a sick or in-pain child, be careful what medicine you give to them.
KinderFarms LLC has issued a voluntary recall for all of its KinderMed Infant's Pain and Fever and KinderMed Kid's Pain and Fever due to the acetaminophen's instability.
Acetaminophen is the active ingredient in many pain-relieving medicines. As a result of the potential health risk with acetaminophen being outside of specification, the product may cause acute adverse health effects, including abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting or jaundice at higher doses.
The company has not received any reports of serious adverse events from either of these products to date.
No other KinderFarms products are impacted by this recall.
These products are available nationwide in drug/pharmacy, supermarkets, direct delivery and national retailers, and online through major ecommerce sites.
Consumers who purchased either of these two products should stop using them and may return the product to the place of purchase for a full refund.
