PHARMACY giant Boots is recalling tens of thousands of bottles of cough and cold medicines over fears that plastic might have got into the liquid.

As a precautionary measure Boots is asking all UK shoppers to return any of its branded medicines that were purchased since September.

The medicines being recalled are:

Boots Pharmaceuticals Chesty Cough Relief 100mg/5ml Oral Solution

Boots Pharmaceuticals Dry Cough Relief Oral Solution

Boots Pharmaceuticals Mucus Cough Relief 100mg/5ml Oral Solution

Boots Pharmaceuticals Paracetamol 6 years Plus 250mg/5ml Oral Solution 200ml

Boots Pharmaceuticals Ibuprofen 3 Months plus 100mg/5ml Oral Suspension Strawberry

Although there have been no reported incidents as yet, a possible fault in the manufacturing process of the tamper seal may have resulted in small pieces of plastic being found in the liquid medicines, says Boots.

In a statement, Boots said: "The health and safety of our customers and patients is always our highest priority so as a precaution we are recalling some Boots medicine lines.

"We have taken the decision to ask customers to return these products to our stores for a refund. We're sorry for any inconvenience this may cause our customers and would like to offer our reassurances that these actions are taken as a precaution, while we fully investigate the situation."

How would they know who to reprimand for it? I think it's good they are doing it, it shows they care. They never recalled them horsemeat burgers did they?, granted they didn't have plastic in them...but does anyone know what they did have in em?
