Urgent Product Recall: Children’s Painkillers Pose Choking Risk

Three generic pain relievers for children have been urgently recalled “due to the risk of bottle grooves breaking off when opening the bottle potentially resulting in a choking hazard to children.”

The recall affects 3 batches of Pharmacy Choice medicine and one Chemmart medicine.

Pharmaceutical manufacturer Symbion says the Pharmacy Choice Ibuprofen Children’s suspension medicine with batch numbers IA45162, IA50044 and IA50026 have been recalled, with expiry dates of May and June 2017.

The 200ml Chemmart Children’s Paracetamol 6 to 12 years concentrated has the same expiry period with batch numbers IA45163 and IA50030 and should also be returned if it has an expiry date of October 2016.

Consumers are advised not to use any affected medicine, and to return it to the place of purchase for a refund.



Jolene enjoys writing, sharing and connecting with other like-minded women online – it also gives her the perfect excuse to ignore Mount-Washmore until it threatens to bury her family in an avalanche of Skylander T-shirts and Frozen Pyjama pants. (No one ever knows where the matching top is!) Likes: Reading, cooking, sketching, dancing (preferably with a Sav Blanc in one hand), social media, and sitting down on a toilet seat that one of her children hasn’t dripped, splashed or sprayed on. Dislikes: Writing pretentious crap about herself in online bio’s and refereeing arguments amongst her offspring.
