Cold Meds Part 103: NO-NOS for under 4
Manufacturers have agreed to slap a label on children's cough and cold meds warning the products are not for use by kids under age 4 according to a story in the New York Times. Why not use the label for adult products too? Remember, the FDA fell short of banning these meds for kids older than 2 - affirmed this position just last week - because of concerns kids would get adult products instead. Reasoning seems a bit circular to me. Anyone else?
