Perrigo Company plc of Dublin, Ireland, announced today that, following the recent recall of certain dosing cups by its supplier, it has initiated a product recall in the US to the retail level of 2 batches of its children’s guaifenesin grape liquid (100mg/5 mL) and 3 batches of its children’s guaifenesin DM cherry liquid (100mg guaifenesin and 5mg dextromethorphan HBr/ 5 ml) sold in 4 oz. bottles with dosage cup in a box under the store brand products listed below. This recall is being initiated because some packages contain an oral dosing cup with incorrect dose markings.
Use of these products according to labeled instructions with an affected dosing cup is unlikely to result in serious side effects, and no reports related to overdose have been received to date.
These recalled products are sold by distributors nationwide and distributed through retail stores.
Perrigo is notifying its distributors and customers by verbal and e-mail communication, followed by formal FedEx-delivered communication. It also is arranging for return of all recalled products. Distributors/retailers that have the affected batches of children’s guaifenesin grape liquid and/or children’s guaifenesin DM cherry that is being recalled should stop distribution and return product.
Consumers that have product with the corresponding labels and batch numbers listed below should discard the dosing device and product and may call Perrigo, toll free, Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM to 10:00 PM EST, at 1-888-345-0479, or visit mucusreliefrecall.com. Consumers should contact their physician or healthcare provider if they have any questions, or if they or their children experience any problem that could possibly be related to this drug product.
