MISSISSAUGA, ON, Oct. 30 /CNW/ - On October 29th, 2007, Wyeth Consumer
Healthcare in the United States announced a voluntary recall and replacement
program from the U.S. market of several Robitussin(R) products and Children's
Dimetapp(R) Cold & Chest Congestion. The products are being recalled and
replaced because the dosage cup with these products does not have a
half-teaspoon mark corresponding with their product labels. This action is
specific to the dosage cup and not related to the safety of the medication.
The dosing cups in question are not included with any Robitussin(R) or
Dimetapp(R) products in Canada.
Wyeth Consumer Healthcare Canada wants to assure consumers that they can
continue to use Robitussin(R) or Dimetapp(R) products. These products are safe
when used according to label directions.
