On Nov. 13, 2023, KinderFarms, LLC announced they are voluntarily recalling “all lots of KinderMed Infants’ Pain & Fever (oral suspension) and KinderMed Kids’ Pain & Fever (oral suspension) to the retail and consumer level,” the U.S. Food & Drug Administration reported.
Due to “acetaminophen instability,” which causes “acute adverse health effects, including abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting or jaundice at higher doses,” KinderFarms made the decision to recall the products.
What KinderMed products are being recalled?
KinderMed Infants’ Pain & Fever (2 fluid ounces/59 mL), (Acetaminophen – 160 mg per 5 mL), Oral Suspension
KinderMed Kids’ Pain & Fever (4 fluid ounces/118 mL), (Acetaminophen – 160 mg per 5 mL), Oral Suspension
The FDA stated that people who purchased these two products “should stop using them and may return the product to the place of purchase for a full refund.”
