I agree with you that it's helpful to have information like this come from a variety of sources, both online and offline. I was glad, though, that we've given up on name brands and gone to using generics. I was frustrated, though, that it took a while to figure out whether the recall affected any generics although I did check to see who manufactured the yummy, according to my kids, grape medicine and determined that it wasn't McNeil.


We had not had the discussion about generics vs. name-brands re kids meds in our house yet - just hadn't floated to the top of the list of things to think about. We've been using generics since the recall, and the downside is that my son seems to find the generic purple tastier than the dye-free name-brand we'd been getting, so he now actively asks for his purple medicine. Le sigh. (Ear infection + 2-year molars mean he's been getting it somewhat frequently.)
