Novartis Triaminic, Theraflu Recall

US/Washington: Novartis recalls various Triaminic Syrups and Theraflu Warming Relief Syrups for coughs, colds and fever due to lack of child-resistant packaging, unintentional ingestion and poisoning hazards. CPSC: http://ht.ly/hmAsg

Direct link: http://www.cpsc.gov/en/Recalls/2013/Triaminic-and-Theraflu-Products-Recalled/

Additional information:
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports the child-resistant caps can fail to function properly and enable the cap to be removed by a child with the tamper-evident seal in place. This poses a risk of unintentional ingestion and poisoning for the 24 variants of the two products included in this recall. These products contain Acetaminophen and Diphenhydramine, both of which are required by the Poison Prevention Packaging Act to be sealed with child-resistant packaging.

Please note: this is a joint recall with Health Canada.

CPSC recall number: 13-114

About Listeria poisoning:
The bacteria that cause Listeriosis (Listeria poisoning) most often produce a gastrointestinal illness that can be quite serious or even fatal. Listeriosis in pregnancy, for example, may cause a miscarriage or fetal death. In other cases, people can develop Septicemia (a serious blood infection) or Meningitis (an inflammation of the covering of the brain and spinal cord, known collectively as the meninges).

You can learn about Listeriosis from the US National Institutes of Health (“NIH”) at http://1.usa.gov/IScAKJ
