 From the Associated Press in Fort Washington, PA....

  Bottles that were supposed to contain Children's Motrin grape chewable
ibuprofen tablets might mistakenly contain an adult dose of a different
kind of over-the-counter pain killer, a drug maker announced.

  A lot that was distributed nationwide to wholesale and retail
customers between Feb. 5 and April 1 might mistakenly contain eight-hour
extended release TYLENOL GELTABS, McNeil Consumer & Specialty
Pharmaceuticals said Wednesday.

  The adult product contains an adult dose of acetaminophen.  

  The Children's product is a purple tablet with a grape smell. The
adult product is a shiny red-and-white, gelatin coated tablet.

  The manufacturing lot number, which is embossed on the carton end flap
and printed on the bottle label under McNeil's address is:  "EXPP 1/06

  Parents who believe their children may have taken the adult product by
mistake should contact their health care provider or a poison control
center immediately.

  In Children, an acetaminophen overdose can lead to nausea and
vomiting, abdominal pain, and liver failure.

  Anyone identifying one of the bottles is asked to contact McNeil's
Consumer Relationship Center at (800) 962-5357.
