In brief: Clarification
Motrin has never been recalled.
It is implicated (as are all nsaids) in mildly increased risk of heart attack. Acetaminophen was recalled (under the brand name tylenol) when perpetrators tampered with bottles in pharmacies in the 1980s by contaminating them with cyanide. Acetaminophen does not belong to the NSAID class like motrin.

The major risk to acetaminophen is liver damage from massive overdosing.
