Benadryl and Motrin For Children Has Been Recalled


If you have some Benadryl or Motrin for your child’s allergies then please note that Johnson and Johnson have recalled the packages of Children’s Benadryl allergy tablets and bottles of junior-strength Motrin caplets.

There is apparently no danger and the recall is voluntary.

“This is not being undertaken on the basis of adverse events, but because we identified insufficiencies in the manufacturing process.” Johnson and Johnson spokesperson.

The recall is because of a problem with the manufacturing process and not a problem with the actual drug.


These are the specific drugs being recalled:

  • Children’s Benadryl Allergy Fastmelt Tablets, cherry flavor, 50580-347-18
  • Children’s Benadryl Allergy Fastmelt Tablets, grape flavor,  50580-348-18
  • Junior Strength Motrin Caplets, 24 count, 50580-498-24

Those reference numbers should be visible on the packaging.
