Bad medicine

If you're like me, you heard about the Children's Motrin and Children's Tylenol recall but didn't check your medicine cabinet. Well, check it now. My boy woke up at 3:30 with an earache and every bottle we had was on the recall list -- some I'd bought two years ago, or more. Some unopened, and some mostly empty bottles that I'd been giving my kids before the recall. Some I bought at Walgreen's here in Stapleton, some I'd gotten in Syracuse. They apparently "don't meet quality standards" -- they were too weak, some had bits of black plastic in them. What was going on in those factories that no one caught the problem for years??

Do we have any oversight in this country? Is this another example of an irresponsible corporation? What do you think?

Check here for Children's Motrin.

Check here for Children's Tylenol.
