The US Drug Watchdog is intensifying its national efforts to get the word out about the FDA recalled drug products called Zicam Nasal Gel & Zicam Cold Remedy Swabs. According to the group, "Our reasons are pretty simple. We fear these Zicam products are in millions of US homes, and the US FDA has said, use of the products could result in a loss of taste, or smell." The US Drug Watchdog is saying, "All US consumers should check to see if these products are in your medicine chests and suggesting, if you have lost your sense of smell, and or taste after using these Zicam products call us immediately at 866-714-6466," or contact us via our web site at Http://USDrugWatchdog.com

(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." If a person has used Zicam Nasal Gel, or Zicam Cold Remedy Swabs, they should contact the US Drug Watchdog immediately at 866-714-6466, or contact the group via its web site at Http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

So what exactly did the FDA say about Zicam Nasal Gel & Zicam Cold Remedy Swabs in its recall? The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has warned Matrixx Initiatives to stop selling three over-the-counter Zicam® products, marketed as cold remedies, after more than 130 people reported developing long-lasting or permanent loss of smell (called anosmia). 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. If they do, and their has been no loss of taste, or smell, throw the product away.
