Daily Q&A: Are there alternatives to some of the liquid infant and children's products recalled recently?

With the recall of several liquid infant and children's products, are there alternatives I can safely give my children?

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced the recall of various liquid infant and children's products, including Tylenol, Motrin, Zyrtec and Benadryl because some of them may not meet required quality standards.

The FDA says there are other versions, including generic products, made for children that are not part of the recall. The FDA recommends reviewing the labeling and consulting your physician if you have questions.

If your child shows adverse reactions to any of the recalled products, they can be reported to the FDA's MedWatch Program by fax at 1-800-FDA-0178, by mail at MedWatch, FDA, 5600 Fishers Lane, Rockville, MD 20852-9787, or on the MedWatch website at www.fda.gov/medwatch3.
