Interesting...<br><br><a href="http://msnbc.msn.com/id/8085957/" target="_blank">Johnson & Johnson recalls Tylenol</a>
<div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">
<div class="smallfont" style="margin-bottom:2px;">Quote:</div>
<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">Johnson & Johnson said Friday it was recalling several varieties of its Tylenol painkiller for children due to confusing packaging information that could lead to young patients being given overly high doses of the over-the-counter medicine.</td>
</tr></table></div>

I saw this last night... really, in this case, it's being recalled because the labels aren't as dummy-proof as they ought to be. It's overkill IMO, but given how dumb some people are and how litigious our society is, I guess I can't blame them.

I know of parents who actually overmedicate on purpose just so they (the parents) do not have to deal..<br>
but then again, we do live in a society of<br><br><b>PROPAGANDA .... and ... POPULATION CONTROL</b>

what???? what does population control have to do with anything? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/headscratch.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="headscratch"><br><br><br><br>
from reading the article, the only concern would be when someone didn't read the label, and automatically assume that two tabs equals one dose, because they are in the same blister. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"> So it was more a packaging mistake rather than a labelling problem.
