Children’s Cough Syrup Recall: What You Need To Know
The Perrigo Company is recalling two types of children’s cough syrup due to incorrect markings on dosing cups, which could lead to an accidental overdose in children.
The company recalled two batches of their children’s guaifenesin grape liquid and guaifenesin DM cherry liquid. The dosing cups on the 4 oz. bottles had the wrong markings, and these items are sold in NINE major stores across the country.
These children’s cough syrups is sold at: H.E.B, CVS, Rite-Aid, Kroger, Dollar General, Sunmark, Topcare, GoodSense and Care One.
The company advises that parents throw away the dosing up instead of trying to figure out the right dosage. The wrong dosage can lead to serious side effects like hallucinations, coma, rapid eye movement, nausea, vomiting, irregular heartbeat, seizures…and death to name a few.
If your child has experienced any of these symptoms, call a doctor or a poison control center. You can read more information about the recall here.
