CPSC: Ruby’s Children’s Pain & Fever Drops Recalled

Duluth, GA — Rugby Laboratories and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) have voluntarily recalled Children’s Pain & Fever Concentrated Drops over failure to meet child-resistant closure requirements. The CPSC announced the product recall on June 23, 2011.

The recall was issued after discovering that although the medicine packaging is child-resistant, a separate dropper unit provided for dispensing the drug to children is not. If children access the medication, it can cause 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 CPSC reported.

The following lot numbers are included in the recall: 09002, 09379, 10272, 10368, 10487, 09131, 09394, 10273, 10406, 11058, 09215, 10154, 10366 and 10433.

Consumers are advised to keep the product out the reach of children. If you would like a free replacement dropper and more information about the product recall, consumers can contact Altaire Pharmaceuticals at (800) 258-2471 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday.
