The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control has been informed that the Hong Kong Department of Health (DH) on 20th may 2016 suspended three batches of children’s panadol 200ml suspension meant for 5 to 12 years. The panadol which is used for relieving mild to moderate pain such as headache, migraine, nerve pain (Neuralgia), toothache, sore throat, earache, fever, pains and discomfort associated with colds and flu was recalled over traces of metals and inert fibre contamination which could render the medicine less effective as well as cause allergic reactions when consumed. This product comes in pack size of 200ml of suspension (5-12years) 48mg/ml of 2 different flavours (strawberry and orange flavour).
