More children’s medicines recalled over lids issue


Symbion product recall - man by words "product recall"

The TGA has advised that more children’s medicines are being recalled, because they have been supplied in bottles where grooves that secure the lids can break off during opening.

The affected products are Chemmart and Pharmacy Choice ibuprofen children’s suspensions and children’s paracetamol 6-12 years concentrated; Terry White Chemists branded ibuprofen children’s suspension; and Pharmacy Care children’s paracetamol suspension for 6 to 12 years and Pharmacy Care’s paracetamol elixir for 1 to 5 years.

The TGA says if the lids break off during opening, there is a small risk that pieces of plastic could be ingested, posing a potential choking hazard.

Last month Symbion recalled six batches of children’s analgesics affected by this issue with the lids, while Apotex recalled a batch of Terry White Chemists branded ibuprofen children’s suspension.
