McNeil Consumer Healthcare Division has voluntarily recalled over half million bottles of infant tylenol. This recall is the result of difficulty using the Infants’ TYLENOL® SimpleMeasure™ dosing system.

Just in case you haven’t hear the makers of the cereal Rice Krispies have settles a lawsuit against them for some nutritional claims they made about this cereal. If you purchase Rice Krispies or Choco Krispies between June 1st, 2009 and March 1st, 2010, you are entitled to receive up $15 in compensation for buying up to 3 boxes as part of this class action lawsuit settlement.
Just as a reminder to my long time readers. back in the Fall of 2009 Vocalpoint offered a free box and Rice Krispies coupons. I actually got these coupons and also bought the cereal with those coupons, so I filled out my claim here.
I just wanted to make you aware that the $2/2 Listerine, Stayfree, Zyrtec, Aveeno coupon has been flagged as a counterfeit coupon by the Coupon Information Center.
This coupon was originally available as a “bricks” coupon and it is in fact still available to print. However it seems the coupon has been manipulated and this has caused it to be flagged as a counterfeit coupon.
If you printed this coupon and not used it yet, I suggest you not use the coupon and discard it to prevent any problems. For a list of coupons currently listed as fraudulent coupons, visit the CIC.
