The recall was initiated after consumers complained that the provided dosage cup is measured in teaspoons, whereas the instructions on the labeling are in milliliters. As a result of this discrepancy, use of the product may cause an overdose to a child, Pfizer said.
Affected products were distributed nationwide and include 4 ounce bottles of Children’s Advil Suspension Bubble Gum Flavored. The recalled medicine features a lot number of RS1129, and an expiration date of Nov. 20.
Consumers with questions about the recall should contact Pfizer; questions about a potential overdose or any other health concern should be directed to a physician, the company said.
To date, no overdoses, injuries, or other adverse events have been linked to the recalled medicine, according to Pfizer.
