A wrongful death action filed by the family of a dead 1-year-old against the makers of Infants' Tylenol has resulted in a $5 million verdict from a Philadelphia jury. Plaintiffs claimed the child died from acetaminophen toxicity after being given dosages of the over-the-counter drug for three days. The family argued that the warning labels and directions on the bottle were not clear. The drug is concentrated to make it easier to administer, which the family did not know, according to their attorney.
