Additional information:
The US Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) reports the following drugs are subject to this recall:

  • Pfizer Children’s Advil Suspension – Bubble Gum Flavored, sold in four (4) fluid ounce bottles with a NDC designation of 0573-0207-30, a latch/lot number of R51129, an expiry date of 11/20, a Pfizer SKU of F005730207300 and a UPC of 3-0573-0207-30-0. The recalled drugs were sold in cases consisting of 36 – four (4) fluid ounce (120 ml) bottles.

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

==> No barcodes, UPCs, item numbers or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.

According to the FDA, this recall was initiated due to customer complaints that the dosage cup provided with the Liquid Advil is marked in teaspoons while the instructions that accompany the Liquid Advil are described in milliliters (mL).

Pfizer has concluded that the use of the drug with an unmatched dosage cup marked in teaspoons rather than milliliters has a chance of being associated with potential overdose. The most common symptoms associated with Ibuprofen overdose include nausea, vomiting, headache, drowsiness, blurred vision and dizziness.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled drug, please do not consume it. Instead, return the Children’s Advil Suspension to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.

If you have any questions about this recall, please contact Pfizer Consumer Healthcare Information Line at 1-800-882-3845 from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Monday to Friday.
