MarketWatch reports that Johnson & Johnson is recalling its children''s-strength Benadryl and Motrin products because of manufacturing problems.

J&J is pulling back 4 million packages of Children''s Benadryl Allergy FastMelt tablets, in cherry and grape flavors, distributed in the U.S., Barbados, Belize, Canada, Puerto Rico, St. Martin and St. Thomas; and 800,000 bottles of Junior Strength Motrin caplets, 24 count, distributed in the U.S., Tuesday media reports say.
