Buckley's syrups recalled due to potential chocking hazard

Company says defective plastic seal can fall into the bottle


The maker of Buckley's is voluntarily recalling a number of its syrups because of a choking hazard.

Health Canada says GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare initiated the recall from stores because the products have a defective plastic seal that may fall into the bottle.

The affected products are all for use by adults or children over 12 years old.

They include Buckley's Complete with the drug identification number 02279703, Buckley's Complete Mucus Relief with the DIN 02357232, Buckley's Cough & Chest Congestion with the DIN 02289164 and Buckley's Cough Mucus & Phlegm with the DIN 02346451. All four come in 150 ml and 250 ml containers.

Other products include Buckley's Original Mixture with the natural product number 02239538 in 100 ml and 200 ml containers, and Buckley's Original Mixture Night Time with the DIN 02230939 in 100 ml containers.

GSK says consumers who have purchased any of the products should not drink from the bottle but pour the syrup into a teaspoon.
