Tesco Flu-Max All in One Chesty Cough & Cold Powder Recall Posted on 12 Jan 2022

Tesco Flu-Max All In One Chesty Cough & Cold Powder for Oral Solution Wrafton Laboratoires Limited (trading as Perrigo) EL (21)A/24

People who have purchased Tesco Max All-In-One Chesty Cough & Cold Lemon Sachets used for the relief of cold and flu symptoms are today being asked to check the batch number on the outer carton and individual sachets. Anyone with a product from one of these batches should stop using the medicine and return it to Tesco for a refund.

Approximately 78,000 packs from three batches, sold only by Tesco, are being recalled as the sachet labelling incorrectly states that children aged 12 years and over can use this product. This medicine should not be given to those aged under 16 years as the product is only for people aged 16 and over.

This product has been taken off shelves while the labelling is updated.
