FDA found bacteria in lots for recalled Tylenol

WASHINGTON (AP) — Ingredients used by Johnson & Johnson in some of the 40 varieties of children's cold medicines recalled last Friday were contaminated with bacteria, according to a report by the Food and Drug Administration.

Agency officials said Tuesday none of the company's finished products tested positive for the contaminants, though such testing is not exhaustive.

The FDA report, which was posted online, lists more than 20 manufacturing problems found at the McNeil Consumer Healthcare plant in Fort Washington, Pa., where the formulas were produced. The recalled products include children and infant formulations of Tylenol, Motrin, Zyrtec and Benadryl.
