Some nonprescription cold medicines are being pulled off store shelves after drug maker Wyeth started a voluntary recall and replacement program at retail outlets across the country.
The cold medicines are being removed because they come with a dosing cup that does not mark the half-teaspoon level recommended for children aged 2-5 years old.
Robitussin Cough DM
Robitussin Cough & Cold CF
Robitussin Cough & Congestion
Robitussin Head & Chest Congestion PE
Robitussin Cough Sugar Free DM
Children’s Dimetapp Cough & Chest Congestion
Wyeth is recommending that consumers with children age 2-5 not use the medications until replacement products with a new dosage cup are available, which will probably take place in November.
So far, no injuries related to the recall have been reported.
