Perrigo are recalling specified batches of Cold & Flu Relief Capsules (GSL) – Various Liveries, due to an error on the leaflet and carton for the products . The leaflet and carton incorrectly states that for Adults, the elderly and children 12 years and over, the dose should be 2 capsules every 4 to 6 hours as required, up to a maximum of 12 capsules in any 24 hour period. The leaflet and carton dosage instructions are those which were in use prior to the paediatric paracetamol posology update implemented by the MHRA.
This product is only sold from various retail stores directly and impacts all products that share the PL number, but packaged in different liveries. If you have any concerns, please contact Perrigo.
