PediaCare Children's Products [Blacksmith Brand]: Recall of four products

PediaCare Multi-Symptom Cold 
PediaCare Long Acting Cough 
PediaCare Decongestant 
PediaCare Allergy and Cold 

Audience: Consumers, Pediatrics healthcare professionals

[Posted 5/29/2010] Blacksmith Brands and FDA notified healthcare professionals and patients about a nationwide recall of all lots of four PediaCare children's products. These products are sold exclusively in the United States and were manufactured by McNeil Consumer Healthcare at McNeil's Fort Washington, PA plant.

The four PediaCare items involved in the recall are:

PediaCare Multi-Symptom Cold 4oz. UPC # 3 0045-0556-05 9
PediaCare Long Acting Cough 4oz. UPC# 3 0045-0465-04 7
PediaCare Decongestant 4oz. UPC# 3 0045-0554-04 8
PediaCare Allergy and Cold 4oz. UPC# 3 0045-0552-04 4

Blacksmith Brands initiated the recall as a precautionary step because the products were manufactured at a McNeil plant in which a recent FDA inspection found serious problems in meeting FDA's current good manufacturing practice requirements. The company advises consumers who have purchased these recalled products to discontinue use.
