Kids’ cough syrups may con­tain mi­crobes

Lodi News-Sentinel - - PAGE TWO - — Mi­ami Her­ald

MI­AMI — The Food and Drug Ad­min­is­tra­tion is­sued a con­sumer ad­vi­sory ear­lier this month to avoid Rompe Pe­cho EX and Rompe Pe­cho CF chil­dren's cough syrups for the pos­si­bil­ity of a mi­cro­bial contaminat­ion.

“These con­tam­i­nated cough medicines could po­ten­tially cause ill­ness,” the ad­vi­sory says.

Though the ad­vi­sory was first posted Oct. 11, it un­doubt­edly will get more at­ten­tion now that Wal­mart noted the ad­vi­sory on its food, drug and prod­uct re­calls page.
