Cold Medicine Recall

Posted: Updated:

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - Several nonprescription cold medicines are being pulled from store shelves.

Wyeth has started a voluntary recall and replacement program at retail outlets nationwide.

According to Wyeth, the products are being removed because they come with a dosing cup that does not mark the half-teaspoon level recommended for children aged 2 through 5 years old.

The company is stressing that there's nothing wrong with the products.

The products being recalled and replaced are: Robitussin Cough DM, Robitussin Cough & Cold CF, Robitussin Cough & Congestion, Robitussin Head & Chest Congestion PE, Robitussin Cough Sugar Free DM and Children's Dimetapp Cough & Chest Congestion.

Wyeth is recommending that consumers with children in the 2 through 5 age group not use the medicines until replacement products with a new dosage cup are available.
