Commissaries pulling recalled child medicines
October 14, 2007
Commissaries across Europe are pulling some pediatric medicines from their shelves after recent reports raised concerns over the health risks they posed, particularly for children under age 2.
Products recalled include: Concentrated Tylenol Infants’ Drops Plus Cold & Cough, Little Noses Baby Meds Colds Multi Symptoms and Little Noses Baby Meds Cough N Decongestion.
DeCA officials in Europe noted that only the Tylenol brand was carried in commissaries. Customers can bring the product back to the store for a refund.
DeCA released the names of other brands listed in the voluntary recall that consumers might have purchased elsewhere. According to Kevin Robinson, of DeCA’s stateside media relations office, “We publish the overall list to give readers an idea of the scope of the recall and for general information purposes.”
DeCA has advised patrons who purchased the products to stop using them.
As of press time, the Navy Exchange Command had not issued any information or product recall notification for its stores.
Chris Ward, a spokesman for the Army and Air Force Exchange Service in Dallas, said AAFES will issue a recall list for its stores when it completes a review of its inventory. In the meantime, customers can go to its Web site at www.aafes.com to get the latest information on recalls.
