Children's medicine recalled for overdosing concern
Pharmaceutical company Perrigo has issued a voluntary recall of several brands of children's cough and cold medicine.
Perrigo says the recall is due to a potential defect causing the wrong markings to appear on dosage cups.
The recall involves two batches of its children's guaifenesin grape liquid along with three batches of children's guaifenesin DM cherry liquid.
Both are sold in 4-ounce bottles by several brands and are carried by CVS, Rite-Aid, Dollar General and other stores.
