Specific flavor of Children’s Advil recalled because of dosage mislabeling

ATLANTA — Pfizer Consumer Healthcare is recalling a specific flavor of Children’s Advil because of a dosage mislabeling issue.

According to the pharmaceutical company, it’s voluntarily recalling Children’s Advil Suspension Bubble Gum Flavored 4 fluid ounce bottles because the dosage cup in the packaging is listed in teaspoons, but the label on the bottle is in milliliters, USA Today reports.

The company says the mislabeling could make it easy for an overdose to occur.

  • Product name: Children’s Advil Suspension Bubble Gum Flavored 4fl oz. Bottle
  • GTIN number: 3-0573-0207-30-0
  • Lot number: R51129
  • Expiration date: Nov. 20

Consumers can return the product to the store where it was purchased for a full refund.

Anyone with additional questions or concerns can contact Pfizer Consumer Healthcare’s Information line at 800-882-3845.
