Children's Advil off shelves in UAE

By Sneha May Francis

The Ministry of Health has taken off Children’s Advil from the UAE shelves.

“The ministry of health withdraws… Children’s Advil Suspension 100 mg/5ml,” read the tweet on the official handle of the Ministry of Health UAE.

The Advil products number  J89260 and L21258 of Children’s Advil Suspension 100mg/5ml, 100ml have been taken off after the pharmaceutical company Pfizer recalled it citing safety concerns.

“There could be inconsistent doses of ibuprofen in the products if they have not been shaken as directed before use,” read the report in CBCnews.

Dr Amin Hussain Al Amiri, Assistant Undersecretary for Public Health Policy and Licensing at the ministry, advised the public to get rid of these products, if they have them at home.
