This was posted on one of my other boards. I wanted to share here b/c I know that some of us have other children that might use these products.
 
Also the NDC number that you're looking for to see if your bottle has been recalled it on the front of the label above the name of the medicine. Make sure to look carefully as the number is small so you may miss it.
 
I do believe that you will be issued a voucher/coupon for another bottle of the medication if your's is affected. So make sure to call if it is, but I believe that their phones are down untill tomorrow.

I am lucky, my Wal-Mart here just gave me cash back for the cost of the medicine. It's super scary, because I had just given my son a dose of the Tylenol plus Cold the night before I found out it had been recalled!!! :(

This is what I heard. I am going to call Wednesday after some of the call volume has gone down. Plus I still have a bottle of Publix brand that is not affected, so I have something in the mean time.
