Study links hospital visits w/kids' cold meds

LOS ANGELES A government study found that emergency room visits have dropped now that the medicines for very young children have been removed from stores.

However, the study found that kids are still getting a hold of the medications.

Experts think they're finding old bottles that haven't been discarded.

Manufacturers voluntarily withdrew medicines labeled for infants and kids up to 2 years old in 2007.
