Big deal. Infant Tylenol has a new cap, and they’re using blogs to promote it. From the pictures I see it still has red dye. Red dye made from petroleum and coal. The same red dye that makes it damn near impossible for me to treat my oldest son when he’s sick since he reacts to red dye. Almost every children’s medication OTC and prescription has red dye in it. There’s no need for this. If you let your child eat red dye, you may as well let them lick the Vaseline jar. The FDA allows so many unnecessary additives in our foods, that red dye is where I draw the line because it adversely affects the health of my child.
*Edited to add: Yes, yes, I know there are liquid dye free forms, but they are thick and nasty. They make my kids with texture issues gag. They make me gag giving them to my kids. There was ONE for of store brand ibuprofen I could buy that had red dye free chewables, but I haven’t been able to get those in months. Not to mention, this isn’t something my child will outgrow. Have you seen how many medicines for older children and adults, not to mention prescription medications, that still have red dye in them? There need to be artificially dye free medications across the board.
