Buckley’s Syrups Recalled

Buckley’s syrups recalled due to potential choking hazard

Health Canada is advising Canadians that GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) Consumer Healthcare Inc. has initiated a voluntary recall of certain Buckley’s syrup products from stores.  A defect with the plastic seal may cause it to fall into the bottle and present a potential choking hazard if swallowed.  This seal is a circular plastic layer that is clear or semi-transparent and approximately 1.7 cm in diameter.

The affected products are indicated for use by adults and children above 12 years old.  Buckley’s Jack and Jill children’s syrup is not part of the recall as it uses a different seal.

Check your home to see if you have purchased any of these recalled products. Do not drink directly from the bottle.  Pour the syrup into a teaspoon and check for the plastic seal before consuming.  Call your doctor if you have used these products and have any health concerns.
