New York, N.Y. (KEVN) - Pfizer Consumer Healthcare, a division of Pfizer Inc., is voluntarily recalling one lot of Children’s Advil Suspension Bubble Gum Flavored 4 FL OZ Bottle because of customer complaints that the dosage cup provided is marked in teaspoons and the instructions on the label are

Pfizer concluded that the use of the product with an unmatched dosage
cup marked in teaspoons rather than milliliters has a chance of being
associated with potential overdose. The most common symptoms
