(PRWEB) August 10, 2009 -- The US Drug Watchdog is amplifying its efforts to get the word out about the FDA recalled allergy-cold-flu products called Zicam Nasal Gel, and Zicam Cold Remedy Swabs out of a genuine concern that the recall was not well publicized, and that these products could literally be in millions of US households. According to the US Drug Watchdog, "The FDA has said that these products could be responsible for users losing their sense of smell, or taste with only one application, and we are doing everything we can think of to get the word out." The FDA has suggested if a consumer has these recalled products, they should be thrown away. However, the US Drug Watchdog is saying, don't throw the Zicam Nasal Gel, or Zicam Cold Remedy Swabs away, if you have lost your sense of smell, or taste, because its evidence, you will need, if you have been damaged by these products."

The warning applies to: Zicam Cold Remedy Nasal Gel, Zicam Cold Remedy Nasal Swabs, and Zicam Cold Remedy Swabs, Kids Size (a discontinued product).

The US Drug Watchdog is appealing to all US Consumers to check to see if they have these products in their medicine cabinets.
