PANAMA CITY, Feb. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Novartis Pharma Logistics, Inc. announced today that it is voluntarily recalling certain lots of Triaminic® Syrups, Theraflu Warming Relief® Syrups, Jack & Jill® brand pediatric syrups and Buckley's® Complete Liquids. Novartis Pharma Logistics has decided to issue a voluntary recall to consumers, retail customers and wholesalers in Aruba because the child-resistant feature of the bottle cap may not function properly, enabling the cap to be removed with the tamper-evident seal still in place. The affected bottle sizes are included at the end of this release.
Novartis Pharma Logistics has not received any adverse events due to the tamper evident seal causing a failure of the child resistant cap. Novartis Consumer Health, Inc. in the United States received four adverse events for Triaminic® Syrups related to this issue.
Triaminic® Syrups, Theraflu Warming Relief® Syrups, Jack & Jill® brand pediatric syrups and Buckley's® Complete Liquids continue to be safe and effective when used as directed on the package label.
The products being recalled were produced at a Novartis Consumer Health manufacturing facility in the US prior to the voluntary suspension of operations in December 2011. In addition to production in the US, Buckley's Complete® was also produced until January 2013 at a third-party manufacturing site in Canada. A consumer complaint in the US in late November 2012 triggered an internal investigation by Novartis Consumer Health that determined a voluntary recall was in the best interest of consumers.
