Multiple brands of powdered cold and flu medications recalled 


Multiple cold and flu powdered medications, for adults and children 12 years of age and older, recalled due to potential health risks

Issue

CellChem Pharmaceuticals Inc. is recalling all lots of cold and flu medications, sold in pouches of dissolvable powder, due to potential health risks. The products are authorized for use in adults and children 12 years of age and older. They are available over-the-counter and sold under various generic store-brand labels at many retailers across Canada.

The products are being recalled because the company could not demonstrate that products remain safe and of good quality until the expiry date. In addition, multiple lots had active ingredients, such as acetaminophen, that were not in the amounts listed on the product label.
