Children’s cold syrup recalled


In the middle of the cold and flu season, a drug company has issued a recall for its children’s cough syrup.

The recall came because of incorrect markings on the dosage cups that were included with children’s grape and cherry liquid cough medicine.

The Perrigo company said the recall involves the children’s guaifenesin grape liquid, 100mg/5 mL and children’s guaifenesin DM cherry liquid, 100mg guaifenesin and 5mg dextromethorphan HBr/5mL.

They were both sold in 4 oz. bottles at stores like CVS, Rite-Aid and Dollar Generals.
