Two million bottles of medicine syrup recalled

Posted: Updated:

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has announced a recall of 2.3 million bottles of Triaminic syrups
and Theraflu warming relief syrup for cough cold and fevers.

The manufacturer, Novartis Consumer Health Inc has had 12 reports of children unscrewing the locked caps, including four reports of children ingesting the product. One child required medical attention.

 These products contain acetaminophen and diphenhydramine, which are required by the Poison Prevention Packaging Act to be sealed with child-resistant packaging.

The products were sold at food, drug, mass merchandise, and club stores nationwide from May 2010 through December 2011 for about $5. They were made in the United States.

 The CPSC says if you have the products, stop using them and contact Novartis for instructions on how to return the product for a full refund. The Consumer Relationship Center number is 1-866-553-6742.
