According to Health Canada, GlaxoSmithKline (“GSK”) Consumer Healthcare has recalled certain batch/lots of Buckley’s Syrup Products from stores. A defect with the plastic bottle seals may cause the seals to fall into their bottle and present a potential choking hazard if swallowed. This seal is a circular plastic layer that is clear or semi-transparent and approximately 1.7 cm in diameter.
If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Cough Syrups, please do not use them. Instead, kindly return the product to the store where you purchased it for a full refund. If you must use the Syrup due to immediate acute illness, the company warns consumers not to drink directly from the bottle. Rather, pour the Syrup into a teaspoon and carefully check for the plastic seal before consuming.
If you have any questions about this recall notification, please contact the company at GSK Consumer Relations at 1-800-250-8866.
Please note: the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act prohibits recalled products from being redistributed, sold or even given away in Canada.
