Infant and Children's Cold Meds

Just an FYI:
Local Stores Pulling Kids Cold Medicine Off Shelves

(Providence, MA) -- Drug makers are voluntarily pulling children's cold
medicines off store shelves because there's the risk of overdose in
Pharmacists, chain store workers, and others in Rhode Island, where the
products are sold, have been removing them. The action comes amid a
by Johnson & Johnson's McNeil Consumer Healthcare Unit. New information
shows the possibility of overdose with the medications, particularly
children younger than two-years-old. The recalled items include:
Concentrated Infants' TYLENOL Drops Plus Cold, Concentrated Infants'
Drops Plus Cold & Cough, PEDIACARE Infant Drops Decongestant, PEDIACARE
Infant Drops Decongestant & Cough, PEDIACARE Infant Dropper
PEDIACARE Infant Dropper Long-Acting Cough, and PEDIACARE Infant Dropper
Decongestant & Cough products.

Thankfully I don't use any of these but incase any of you do..
