MYFOXNY.COM -

McNeil Consumer Healthcare is voluntarily recalling some bottles of MOTRIN liquid drops from wholesalers and retailers in the United States because of the possibility of contamination by small plastic particles.

The company said the small plastic pieces, about the size of poppy seeds, were found in a different product lot that wasn't released to market. The company said it traced the plastic pieces to a shipment from a third-party supplier of ibuprofen, the active medicine in Motrin.

If you have a recalled product you should stop using it and dispose of it.

If you have any questions, you can call customer care at 877-414-7709. If you have any health questions you should contact your doctor.

This is the recalled product with the specific lot numbers and UPCs: Concentrated MOTRIN Infants' Drops Original Berry Flavor 1/2 fl oz bottles NDC 50580-100-18 ; lot numbers: DCB3T01, DDB4R01, DDB4S01; UPC: 300450524157.

    All of us feel the same way about "cooties": Eww. At the Goddard School on the Upper West Side, a high-tech machine is keeping "cooties" out of the classroom. "This is the latest and then most effective sanitization method available today," says Bill Swan, the owner of the Goddard School. He purchased the ZONO Sanitech for his school about six months ago. The machine is the size of a double refrigerator and uses oxygen to kill viruses and bacteria.
