Boots Recall Own Brand Cough and Cold Solutions

Published: 27th November 2013 08:39

medicines recalled by Boots UKThe Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) today published a company led drug recall for specific cough and cold medicines made by Boots UK and purchased since September 2013 following a precautionary recall by the pharmacy-led retailer asking patients to check their medicines.

Boots are recalling the specific medicines after identifying a possible fault in the manufacturing process of the tamper seal that might result in small pieces of plastic being found in the liquid medicines.

There is currently no evidence of any problems from people associated with this manufacturing fault but people are being asked to return the following medicines to Boots as a precautionary measure:

  • Boots Pharmaceuticals Chesty Cough Relief 100mg/5ml Oral Solution
  • Boots Pharmaceuticals Dry Cough Relief Oral Solution
  • Boots Pharmaceuticals Mucus Cough Relief 100mg/5ml Oral Solution
  • Boots Pharmaceuticals Paracetamol 6 years Plus 250mg/5ml Oral Solution 200ml
  • Boots Pharmaceuticals Ibuprofen 3 Months plus 100mg/5ml Oral suspension Strawberry flavour

Boots are offering customers a refund if they return these medicines and people with questions can telephone the Boots Customer Care on 0800 915 0004 or the healthcare team at their local Boots store.

Adam Burgess, the MHRA's Head of Defective Medicines Reporting Centre, said: "This is a precautionary recall by Boots and there is currently no evidence that people have had any problems with these cough and cold medicines.

"People should check their medicine cupboards at home and return these products to Boots if they have purchased them since September 2013. If people are worried or have any questions, they should speak to their pharmacist or GP."
