Children’s Panadol pulled from shelves

Three batches of liquid Children’s Panadol have been pulled from the shelves amid fears it could cause an allergic reaction.

The Therapeutic Goods Administration says an ingredient used in the manufacture of the medicines may have been contaminated with small particles which carry a low risk of allergic reaction.

It has recalled three batches of Children’s Panadol 5-12 years suspension medicines, including one orange and two strawberry-flavoured.
