NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. Johnson & Johnson is recalling millions of packages of over-the-counter drugs for allergies and pain due to manufacturing problems, according to published reports.
The New York Times reported Tuesday that J&J would recall 4 million packages of cherry- and grape-flavored Children’s Benadryl (diphenhydramine) tablets for allergies and 800,000 bottles of children’s Motrin (ibuprofen), a pain drug.
The company told the Times that the recall was at the wholesale and retail level and would not affect drugs already purchased by consumers.
