KinderFarms, LLC is recalling all lots of KinderMed Infants’ Pain & Fever (oral suspension) and KinderMed Kids’ Pain & Fever (oral suspension) due to a potential health risk associated with acetaminophen instability. The two products were manufactured by a major U.S.-based OTC pharmaceutical manufacturer.
Following ongoing testing of sample batches, it was discovered that some product lots were no longer within the required specifications and may pose a health risk. The impacted products include all lots of KinderMed Infants’ Pain & Fever (2 fluid ounces/59 mL), (Acetaminophen – 160 mg per 5 mL), Oral Suspension, and KinderMed Kids’ Pain & Fever (4 fluid ounces/118 mL), (Acetaminophen – 160 mg per 5 mL), Oral Suspension.
The recall was initiated out of an abundance of caution. Consumers who purchased either of these two products should stop using them immediately and return the product to the place of purchase for a full refund. As a result of the potential health risk with acetaminophen being outside of specification, the product may cause acute adverse health effects at higher doses, including abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting or jaundice. However, KinderFarms has not received any reports of serious adverse events from either of these products to date.
The products are available nationwide in drugstores, supermarkets, direct delivery and national retailers, as well as online through major e-commerce sites. Consumers with questions can contact the company at firstname.lastname@example.org or 800-996-2930.
