Blacksmith Brands recalls 4 children's medicines

* Four products recalled voluntarily

* No reports of consumer complaints

LOS ANGELES, May 28 (Reuters) - Blacksmith Brands Inc recalled on Friday four of its children's cough and cold medicines made at a Johnson & Johnson JNJ.N plant which was temporarily closed after U.S. regulators found manufacturing lapses.

Late last month, J&J recalled 40 widely used nonprescription products for children and infants, such as Tylenol and Motrin, after Food and Drug Administration inspectors found filthy equipment and contaminated ingredients at the Pennsylvania factory.

The PediaCare products -- Multi-Symptom Cold, Long Acting Cough, Decongestant and Allergy and Cold medicines -- are sold exclusively in the United States, the FDA said on its website.

The recall was not initiated as a result of any consumer complaints or reports of adverse events, the agency said.

Blacksmith said it is advising consumers to discontinue use of the products and said stores should withdraw the products from their shelves and return them to the company. (Reporting by Deena Beasley; Editing by Tim Dobbyn)
