Protests against Arizona's new immigration law are underway in cities across the US. People are angry that police officers in Arizona are being required to question someone suspected of being in the country illegally about their immigration status. NPR's Carrie Kahn is in downtown Los Angeles where tens of thousands of people have come out and where, she says, the mood is mixed.

There is a lot of anger and upset people in the crowd. When you talk to them individually, they definitely are passionate3 about the reasons why they came out here and are upset about the new law in Arizona. But people actully very festive4 atmosphere that there're a lot of children out here, a lot of families. I talked to a grandfather who came out with his grandson because he wanted him to see what a protest rally was like and showed solidarity5 and support for Latinos and  immigrants in the United States. So it is a family affair, but there are a lot of angry messages.

McNeil Consumer Healthcare after consulting with the FDA announced a voluntary recall yesterday, saying the products involved may not meet required quality standards. That means some of the products included in the recall may have a higher concentration of active ingredient than specified8. Others may contain inactive ingredients that may not meet internal testing requirements. And others may contain tiny particles. The FDA says as a precaution, parents and caregivers shouldn't give the medicine to their children. It also advises against giving kids the adult version to the products. If an adult has already given a child one of the recalled products and the child exhibits unexpected symptoms, the FDA recommends contacting a healthcare professional.
