Company recalls children's cough medicine

(WFSB) -

A company that sells children's cough medicine at Kroger, CVS, Dollar General and Rite-Aid stores is recalling the product due to overdosing concerns.

The Perrigo Company announced this week that it initiated a voluntary nationwide recall for two batches of its children's guaifenesin grape liquid and three batches of its children’s guaifenesin DM cherry liquid.

The grape flavor is for the 100mg/5 ml. The cherry flavor is the 100mg guaifenesin and 5mg dextromethorphan HBr/ 5 ml.

Both were sold in 4 oz bottles with a dosage cup in a box under the store brand products.

Perrigo said in an online news release that the recall was initiated because of the potential for some packages to contain an oral dosing cup with incorrect dose markings.

Customers were asked to discard the dosing device and product.

Here are the recalled products and branded labels:
