Liquid meds for kids recalled

Just a quickie I spotted. Forty popular liquid medicines for children--Tylenol, Tylenol Plus, Motrin, Zyrtec, and Benadryl--are now thought to have been manufactured without proper quality controls, whatever that means.

Don't forget--kids have littler systems to process stuff.

Parents should not give these as a precautionary measure. Stay tuned.

If your child has a cold, try sitting in a steamy bathroom, offering juice and water, and plenty of hugs.

It may be the brands that are in doubt--generics are OK if you want to try them.

I also read the FDA knew about this stuff a year ago. Oy.
