Children’s Advil Recall Due to Overdose Concerns
Pfizer issued a voluntary nationwide recall today of the Children's Advil Suspension Bubble Gum Flavored 4 Fl OZ Bottle.
The statement came after customer complaints that the dosage cup provided markings in teaspoons while the instructions on the label were described in milliliters (mL).
The company concluded that the unmatched dosage cup marked in teaspoons had a chance of being associated with potential overdose.
Common overdose symptoms for ibuprofen would include nausea, vomiting, headache, drowsiness, blurred vision and dizziness.
The over-the-counter medication is used to temporarily reduce fever, relieve minor aches and pains due to the common cold, flu, sore throat, headaches and toothaches.
