If you purchased infant Tylenol 2014 and 2020, you may be eligible for part of a 6.3 million dollar settlement. According the USA TODAY:

Parents who bought Infants’ Tylenol in the past six years could get money back from a $6.3 million lawsuit settlement with Johnson & Johnson.

The medicine’s packaging, which features a picture of a mother holding her baby and a label that says “infants,” misleads consumers into thinking Infants’ Tylenol is specially formulated for infants, the class-action lawsuit argued.

In reality, the bottle contains the same concentration of liquid acetaminophen as Children’s Tylenol, but often at a higher price, according to the lawsuit.

However, Infants’ Tylenol includes a syringe to administer a safe dose of the liquid medicine to an infant, which Children’s Tylenol does not include, making the two products different, Johnson & Johnson Consumer Inc. said.

According to The Daily Hornet, “Consumers who join the class action can claim $2.15 for every 1 fl. oz and 2 fl. oz. bottle of Infants’ Tylenol purchased. Up to 7 bottles or $15.05 may be claimed without proof of purchase. An unlimited number of bottles may be claimed if you have proof of purchase. You must submit a claim form by April 13, 2020.”
