Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- A popular medicine used to help sick children is being pulled from store shelves.

Johnson & Johnson's McNeil unit is voluntarily recalling some of its infants' and children's liquid Tylenol because of possible bacterial contamination.

The products being recalled were made between April and June 2008 and include nearly two dozen varieties.

According to the company, all products manufactured met internal specifications. However, an unused portion of one inactive ingredient did not meet all quality standards.

The company said no bacteria were found in the finished product and the likelihood of a serious medical event is remote. However, after consulting with the Food and Drug Administration, the company decided to recall the products.
