Triaminic and Theraflu Products Recalled – Jacksonville Products Liability Attorneys Tell Why February 12, 2013 Novartis recently announced a recall of certain lots of its popular Triaminic and Theraflu products. Though the worst of the 2012-2013 flu season is over, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, risk of falling ill remains. In the United States, the flu season is considered October through May, and usually peaks in February. So, over-the-counter flu medications are kept handy in homes nationwide. But if you use Novartis brands, you’ll want to check the bottles before using them again, product liability and dangerous drug lawyers say. Swiss-based Novartis International AG, one of the world’s largest pharmaceutical manufacturers, has voluntarily recalled certain lots of Triaminic Syrups and Theraflu Warming Relief Syrups that were manufactured in the United States before December 31, 2011. The child resistant feature of the bottle cap may malfunction, enabling the cap to be removed with the tamper-evident seal remaining intact. This means that there is no way to tell whether a bottle of medicine may have been tampered with, making it potentially unsafe. Affected lots of the medications were sold in stores throughout the United States.
