Health officials are investigating reports that bottles containing Children's Motrin grape chewable ibuprofen tablets actually are filled with adult doses of Tylenol, a serious health risk to children. The lot was distributed nationwide between February 5, 2004 and April 1, 2004, says drugmaker McNeil Consumer & Specialty Pharmaceuticals. Parents should be on the lookout for bottles with the lot number "Exp 1/06 JAM108." The eight-hour extended release Tylenol Geltabs are red-and-white and contain an adult dose of acetaminophen.

Acetaminophen may cause liver failure, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain in children. Officials are warning parents with children who may have taken the geltabs to immediately contact their physician or a poison control center.

If you have a child who has taken Children's Motrin containing an adult dose of acetaminophen, it may be important to contact an attorney who can help you protect your legal rights. Please keep in mind that there may be time limits within which you must commence suit.
