A massive recall has recently been issued for a medicine that I would bet every one of us has had many times in our lives - you probably have a bottle in your house right now. Do NOT just dismiss this recall - take a minute to see if it applies to you.

HALEON, a "world-leading consumer health company," has issued a voluntary recall of Robitussin Honey CF Max Day Adult and Robitussin Honey CF Max Nighttime Adult due to microbial contamination. The good news is that, as of this writing, Haleon has not received any reports of illnesses related to this recall.

The Federal Drug Administration (FDA) explains the dangers involved with this recall...

In immunocompromised individuals, the use of the affected product could potentially result in severe or life-threatening adverse events such as fungemia or disseminated fungal infection. In non-immunocompromised consumers, the population most likely to use the product, life-threatening infections are not likely to occur. However, the occurrence of an infection that may necessitate medical intervention cannot be completely ruled out.

If you have any of the products listed, you should stop taking them immediately. Contact your physician or healthcare provider if you experience any problems that may be related to taking or using this product.
