DRUG RECALL INFORMATION

All drugs containing PHENYLPROPANOLAMINE are being recalled. You may

want to try calling the 800 number listed on most drug boxes and inquire about a REFUND Please read this CAREFULLY. Also, please pass this on to everyone you know.

STOP TAKING anything containing this ingredient. It has been linked
to increased hemorrhagic stroke (bleeding in brain) among women ages
18-49 in the three days after starting use of medication. Problems were
not found in men, but the FDA recommended that everyone (even children) seek alternative medicine.

I just found out and called the 800# on the container for Triaminic and they informed me that they are voluntarily recalling the
following medicines because of a certain ingredient that is causing strokes and seizures in children:

Orange 3D Cold & Allergy Cherry (Pink)
3D Cold & Cough Berry
3D Cough Relief Yellow 3D Expectorant

They are asking you to call them at 800-548-3708 with the lot number
on the box so they can send you postage for you to send it back to
them, and they will also issue you a refund. If you know of anyone else
with small children, PLEASE PASS THIS ON. THIS IS SERIOUS STUFF!

DO PASS ALONG TO ALL ON YOUR MAILING LIST so people are informed.
They can then pass it along to their families.
