Children's Benadryl, additional Motrin recalls announced

NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ (AP) - Health care giant Johnson & Johnson has announced another product recall, this one involving about 4 million packages of Children's Benadryl Allergy Fastmelt Tablets and 800,000 bottles of Junior Strength Motrin Caplets.

The New Brunswick, N.J., company says its latest recall is at the wholesale and retail level, but consumers can still use the products and no action is required by them or providers. J&J says it did the recall after a review found insufficiencies in the development of the manufacturing process.

The recall involves cherry and grape flavors of the Fastmelt tablets and 24-count packages of Junior Strength Motrin Caplets.

J&J has seen its reputation battered in the past year by product recalls involving tens of millions of bottles of Tylenol, Motrin and other nonprescription drugs.
