NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) -- A Washington state couple is suing Johnson & Johnson, alleging their toddler son was killed after taking defective Children's Tylenol from a batch that had been recalled.

Daniel and Katy Moore claim 2-year-old River Moore was given Very Berry Strawberry flavored Children's Tylenol for a slight fever late on July 22, 2010 and began spitting up blood 30 minutes later.

He was rushed to a hospital and died the next day of liver failure. The family's lawyer says the pills contained a "super dose" of acetaminophen that damaged the child's liver.

Johnson & Johnson says the recalls were not related to the "serious adverse events" alleged in the lawsuit. It says the company promptly notified consumers, doctors, retailers and regulators about the recall.
