The makers of Triaminic cough syrup for children recalled over 2.3 million units of cough syrup this past week as four children ingested the medication on accident. The recall comes because the child-resistant caps were able to be opened up by these children on their own.

The cough syrups themselves contained acetaminophen, which used correctly helps to reduce fever and pain. But when taken in too large amounts can cause liver injury and even the liver to fail. Some of these cough syrups like the Children’s nighttime syrup contained diphenhydramine which is an antihistamine that can cause cardiac arrest, or even seizures should an overdose occur. Children love to go after these medicines, because of the appealing fruity flavors. And unfortunately in this case the child-resistant cap did not work properly as it should have.

If you happen to have one of the recalled products, follow the instructions provided by Triaminic to return your products.
