All lots of the following PediaCare items have been recalled:
PediaCare Multi-Symptom Cold 4 oz. UPC #3 0045-0556-05 9
PediaCare Long Acting Cough 4 oz. UPC #3 0045-0465-04 7
PediaCare Decongestant 4 oz. UPC #3 0045-0554-04 8
PediaCare Allergy and Cold 4 oz. UPC #3 0045-0552-04 4
The recall is a precautionary measure because the plant where these medications are made has been temporarily shut down after the FDA found serious problems in meeting the FDA's good manufacturing practice requirements. There have been no reported adverse events or consumer complaints in association with these products.
Consumers are asked to stop using these products immediately. Any adverse effects should be reported to the FDA.
The recalled medications will now be made at a different plant. They should be back on store shelves in July.
