  • HAPPYTOT and HAPPYBABY Pouch Meals, select varieties, may have a packaging defect that could cause bacterial contamination.
  • The weight-loss drug Meridia may be risky for people with heart disease.
  • Some forms of Tylenol, Motrin, Benadryl, and other over-the-counter products may have a moldy or musty odor and could possibly cause illness.
