Children’s Advil recalled due to overdose concerns

Posted: Updated:

Pfizer is voluntarily recalling one lot of their Suspension Bubble Gum Flavored 4 FL OZ Bottle due to a labeling mistake.

The company released this statement. 

The dosage cup is marked in teaspoons, while the label is in milliliters, which raises overdose concerns.

The recall only affects the 4-ounce bottles sold between May and June of this year.

Homeopathic company King Bio also issued a voluntary recall on all water-based medicines for kids, pets and adults

The company warns there might be a possible "microbial contamination." The products have faced criticism by the FDA because they don't require approval before hitting the market.
