KinderFarms, LLC is issuing a recall for all lots of KinderMed Infants’ Pain & Fever (oral suspension) and KinderMed Kids’ Pain & Fever (oral suspension) due to potential health risks associated with acetaminophen instability. The products were manufactured by a major U.S.-based OTC pharmaceutical company and packaged under the KinderFarms brand.
Ongoing testing of sample batches revealed that some product lots did not meet the required specifications and may pose a health risk. The impacted products include all lots of KinderMed Infants’ Pain & Fever (2 fluid ounces/59 mL), (Acetaminophen – 160 mg per 5 mL), Oral Suspension, and KinderMed Kids’ Pain & Fever (4 fluid ounces/118 mL), (Acetaminophen – 160 mg per 5 mL), Oral Suspension.
Consumers who purchased either of these two products should stop using them immediately and return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. As a result of the potential health risk with acetaminophen being outside of specification, the product may cause acute adverse health effects at higher doses, including abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, or jaundice. However, KinderFarms has not received any reports of serious adverse events from either of these products to date.
The products are available nationwide in drugstores, supermarkets, direct delivery and national retailers, and online through major e-commerce sites. Consumers with questions may contact the company at email@example.com or 800-996-2930.
