Please consult the photograph above for details of the product’s packaging, design and retail presentation. 

According to Health Canada, Pfizer Consumer Healthcare has initiated a voluntary recall of 126 lots of Advil liquid products for infants and children because of a potential risk of inconsistencies in dosing of the product.

“Clumps” of Ibuprofen may form in the bottle and lead to higher or lower doses that are given to infants and children if it is not shaken well before each use.

Lower doses may not be adequate in reducing symptoms such as fever, leading to other health issues that could include, in rare instances, convulsions. Although unlikely, higher doses may lead to vomiting, drowsiness, dizziness, ‘ringing in the ears’ and lowered breathing rates.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Advil Products, please do not administer them to your child. Instead, kindly return the product to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.

If you have any questions about this recall notification, please contact Pfizer at 1-888-275-9938.

Please note: the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act prohibits recalled products from being redistributed, sold or even given away in Canada.
