FDA MedWatch - All KinderMed Pain & Fever Products by KinderFarms Recall - Due to Acetaminophen Instability
The two products were manufactured and packaged for KinderFarms by a major, U.S.-based OTC pharmaceutical manufacturer with over 30 years of experience. Ongoing testing of sample batches indicated some product lots were no longer in specification and may pose a health risk. Out of an abundance of caution, KinderFarms has made the decision to voluntarily recall all KinderMed Pain & Fever products.
The company has not received any reports of serious adverse events from either of these products to date. No other KinderFarms products are impacted by this recall.
These products are available nationwide in drug/pharmacy, supermarkets, direct delivery and national retailers, and online through major ecommerce sites.
