Children's Advil Recalled Due to Overdose Concerns
The label of the recalled product.   (Pfizer)

Check your bottle of Children's Advil: Pfizer is recalling one lot of Children's Advil Suspension Bubble Gum flavor because while the label instructions describe dosages in milliliters, the dosage cup is marked in teaspoons. That puts users at risk of overdosing, Pfizer says in a press release. The recall is a voluntary one, and anyone who purchased the lot in question can get a full refund, USA Today reports. More details on how to identify whether your bottle is affected can be found at the FDA's website. (More Advil stories.)
