The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a voluntary recall of Altaire Pharmaceuticals Children’s Pain & Fever Concentrated Drops. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.

This recall involves close to 898,000 units that were distributed by Rugby Laboratories, Inc., of Duluth, Georgia. The recall was a precautionary measure as no injuries have been reported.

This over the counter medicine contains acetaminophen which calls for child-resistant packaging as required by the Poison Prevention Packaging Act. Although the original bottle has child-resistant packaging, a separate dropper unit provided for dispensing the drug to children does not. When in use, a child can access the medicine, posing serious health problems or death if more than the recommended dosage is consumed.

The recall involves Rugby Children’s Pain & Fever Concentrated Drops (Acetaminophen Drops) in a 1/2 fl. oz. (15 ml) bottle size. The UPC code 305361936723 can be found with the bar code at the bottom of the box. The affected lot numbers are: 09002, 09379, 10272, 10368, 10487, 09131, 09394, 10273, 10406, 11058, 09215, 10154, 10366, 10433.

Consumers who have this product should immediately store it with the child-resistant closure in place and keep it out of the reach of children. To arrange for a free replacement dropper, contact Altaire Pharmaceuticals at (800) 258-2471. disclaimer: This article: Children’s Acetaminophen Drops Recalled for Faulty Dropper was posted on Friday, June 24th, 2011 at 2:43 pm at and is filed under Uncategorized.
