Worth a look in your cupboards, mine is like a pharmacy with my mob

Parents are being urged to check their medicine cupboards after an ingredient in eight own brand cough medicines was found to go mould

Some have passed there sell-by but double check, if you've got the affected batches, take them to where you purchased for a full refund

Government agency the MHRA want parents to see if they have one of the offending bottles at home, and if so to take it back to where they bought it for an immediate replacement.

They added that a problem with one of the ingredients in these medicines has been identified which could cause them to allow mould to grow.

There is a low risk that the mould could make the child unwell or cause a reaction, although to date they are not aware of any cases where this has happened. As a precaution it has been decided to recall affected batches.

Title should be Own-Brand Cough Syrups instead of medicines, IMO.
Lemon and honey works way better. Don't folks not shake this stuff to which is another problem?
