Contaminated PediaCol Recalled In Canada

Health Canada is warning parents to check the batch number of their PediaCol colic drops. Euro-Pharm International Canada has issued a recall of PediaCol drops, Lot No. PDC701 after Health Canada informed the company that this lot was contaminated with yeast.

PediaCol is used to treat the symptoms of colic in infants and young children. The agency warns that the contaminated yeast could cause severe reactions – nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, fever, weight loss, lethargy, coughing, or decreased appetite – especially in immunocompromised children.

If you have purchased this product, return it to the store for a full refund and discard and bottles used to store or administer the product. To report a suspected adverse reaction, contact the Canada Vigilance Program of Health Canada at 1-866-234-2345
