Children's tylenol recall and chocolate flavoured formula

Posted by Saraline , Saturday, May 1, 2010 5:21 PM

McNeil Consumer Healthcare has issued a recall for more than 40 over the counter medications for children. The recall includes children's versions of Tylenol, Tylenol Plus, Motrin, Zyrtec, and Benadryl. The medications in question have been sold in 12 countries, including Canada and the U.S.

The recall is a precautionary measure and no children have had reported illnesses due to taking these medicines, but it's still pretty scary. More information about the recall is available here.

In other news, an infant formula company is now selling chocolate flavoured formula:

Mead-Johnson, the company that prides itself on its "decades-long patterning of infant formulas after breast milk," now goes one better. It sells chocolate- and vanilla-flavored formulas for toddlers, fortified with nutrients, omega-3s, and antioxidants.

Allow me to just point something out here.

"Decades-long patterning of infant formulas after breast milk."

Chocolate flavoured formula.

"Decades-long patterning of infant formulas after breast milk."

Chocolate flavoured formula.

And with that, I'll leave you to think about what the similarities could possibly be between breast milk and chocolate flavoured baby formula.

I think a far better plan is to feed me tons of chocolate and see if I produce chocolate milk. I'm sure expensive, dark chocolate would be the best plan. In the name of science, you know.

Caitlin Says:

Because what I eat and drink passes directly into my breastmilk 100% strength. Including chocolate flavour, soda carbonation, and poison. And when it's winter, she gets ice cream!

Saraline Says:

LOL, Kate and Caitlin! You're both cracking me up.

On a more serious note, Canadian information on the tylenol/motrin recall is at www.tylenol.ca
