NEW YORK, N.Y.  – Officials are recalling a children’s medicine after they say issues were reported with the dosage cup and dosage instructions.

On Monday, Pfizer Consumer Healthcare issued a recall for one lot of Children’s Advil Suspension Bubble Gum Flavored 4 fl oz. bottle. Officials say the recall comes after customer complaints that the dosage cup is marked in teaspoons and the instructions on the label are described in milliliters (ml). According to Pfizer, Inc., use of the product has a chance of being associated with potential overdose.
