Children's Medicine Recall Expands

The huge recall of children's pain relievers and allergy products has expanded.

Four PediaCare products have been added to the list, including multi-symptom cold, long-acting cough, decongestant and allergy & cold.

Blacksmith Brands issued the voluntarily recall as a precaution because they were made at the same Pennsylvania plant where Johnson & Johnson's liquid Tylenol, Motrin, Benadryl and Zyrtec were made.

The Food and Drug Administration had found quality control problems at the plant during inspections. There have been no problems linked to the PediaCare products.

Blacksmith says it will produce new lots of the medicine at other plants.
