Difficulties with the childrens medicine 2010 recall

The maker of the medicines, McNeil Consumer Healthcare, initiated the recall on childrens medicine. The children's medicine 2010 recall was announced for 3 reasons. First, some of the medicines have "a higher concentration of the active ingredient" then is on the label. Second, some of the medicines have "inactive ingredients that don't meet internal standards" for quality. Third, some of the recall on children's medicine 2010 is because you will find small particles in the medicine.
