Recall: Health Canada & Pfizer Consumer Healthcare Recalling 124 lots Advil Infant & Children Liquids


Pfizer has recalled 124 lots of Advil liquid products for infants and children! Health Canada is informing Canadians that Pfizer Consumer Healthcare has initiated a voluntary recall of 124 lots of Advil liquid products for infants and children because of a potential risk of inconsistences in dosing of the product. “Clumps” of Ibuprofen may form in the bottle and lead to higher or lower doses that are given to infants and children if it is not shaken well before each use.

Lower doses may not be adequate in reducing the fever, leading to other health issues which could include, in rare instances, convulsions, the alert said. Although unlikely, higher doses may lead to vomiting, drowsiness, dizziness, ringing in the ears’ and decreased breathing rates.

Read DIN and Lot numbers of recalled products here.

  • Advil Pediatric Drops DIN 02242522
  • Children’s Advil Cold DIN 02248435
  • Children’s Advil Fever from Colds or Flu DIN 02328437
  • Children’s AdvilDIN 02232297
  • Advil Pediatric Drops Fever from Colds or Flu DIN 02328445

It is recommended from Health Canada and Pfizer that consumers stop using the affected products and return them to a pharmacy. Parents who have given their children these products and are concerned should consult their doctor, Health Canada said.

    The information on the Health Canada site has been removed and there isn’t a mention on the government site at all.

    I have 2 sealed bottles affected. Is advil going to send us FPC’s?
    I certainly don’t have the receipt anymore as they were purchased early January

  4. Concerned Mom says:

    I called the 1800 or 1877 # immediately and after way too many buttons to press I finally had the 3 minute automated reply regarding mostly Pfizer deep commitment to health and safety, but then a quick Email us at info@. …… and request a refund. I’m not fast enough to write down the email address, it came up so unexpectedly and only once in the long winded message. There was no mention of any receipts required. And of course I’m taking back the opened bottle and unopened box back to Shoppers Drug Mart immediately to dispose of them safely. Please be careful moms and dads!
