  • Just so you know only the Tylenol Brand was recalled. Any of the store brand and/or generic acetominaphen is fine.

  • Tylenol was not recalled, only childrens. And it was the BRAND name tylenol, so any store brand will work

  • acetaminophen it all tylenol is and you can buy it at any drug store, actually you'll get a bigger bottle for less than a small bottle of tylenol and it's the same stuff

  • You take baby tylenol? The adult stuff is still there but if you want something different just use the store brand. It hasnt' been recalled.

  • Several U.S brand name over-the-counter medicines are Tylenol, Tylenol plus, Motrin, Benadryl and Zyrtec. In Canada the recall has been limited to Children’s Tylenol Cough & Runny Nose liquid suspension, Infants Motrin Liquid Suspension and Children’s Motrin.

    The Danger: These products may not meet required quality standards. Some of the recalled products may contain a higher concentration of “active ingredient” than is specified on the label; others may contain tainted particles.

  • GENERIC acetominaphen (gosh I just murdered that spelling). I never buy brand name and we've never had a problem.
