Children’s Dimetapp and Robitussin to be Recalled and Relabeled Due to Infant Overdoses

Filed October 30th, 2007 amy

Wyeth Consumer Healthcare, maker of Dimetapp and Robitussin, is voluntarily removing certain infant cough and cold products from the market in effort to help reduce overdoses in children under age 2. This age group is the most vulnerable to overdoses, though this may not be the fault of parents or caregivers. The dosage cups included with the Wyeth Dimetapp and Robitussin cold medicines don’t have a half-teaspoon mark, which is the dose currently advised for children under age six.

Those shopping for Robitussin and Dimetapp brands can expect to see new labels on cough and cold products very soon. The new labels will contain the warning “Do no use in children under two years of age.” Parents and caregivers of ill children should consult their healthcare professionals for alternative ways to treat coughs and colds in children under age six.

Products being recalled and relabeled include:

Children’s Dimetapp(R) Cold & Chest Congestion
Robitussin(R) Head & Chest Congestion PE
Robitussin(R) Cough & Congestion
Robitussin(R) Chest Congestion
Robitussin(R) Cough & Cold CF
Robitussin(R) Cough DM
Robitussin(R) Cough Sugar Free DM

Further information on these products can be found at Dimetapp.com or Robitussin.com, or by calling 800-762-4675.
