Tylenol Side Effects: Hearing Examines Recall

By Peter Chubb - May 26, 2010

The FDA is to hold a hearing tomorrow – May 27th – to examine the side effects of the drug Tylenol, which they had to issue a recall for. In the report that will be studied tomorrow, the Food and Drug Administration will look into the 30 deaths – although it is thought that they have no connection with the drug.

CNN Money explains that the FDA will also looks into the hundreds of side effects along with 7 deaths that have happened since May 1 – this was when McNeil, a division of Johnson & Johnson recalled its children’s version of Tylenol due to concerns with its safety.

The FDA is yet to comment on this matter, which is understandable in a serious case like this. We do not expect an outcome on May 27 – this is the fourth recall from McNeil in the past seven months, which is certainly worrying for those who have taken the drug.

These drugs include: Tylenol Arthritis Pain 100, Tylenol Arthritis Pain caplet, Tylenol, Motrin, along with the Childs version of the drug recently.

What do you think the outcome will be, or should be?

    This article is wrong.. not only is the name "Tylenol" spelled wrong on the box but they state "motrin" is part of the medication in this family. It is NOT, Motrin is IBUPROFEN, not acetaminophen. Please fix this article.
