I just found out and called the 800# on the container for Triaminic and they
informed me that they are voluntarily recalling the following medicines
because of a certain ingredient that is causing strokes and seizures in
children.

Orange 3D Cold &Allergy Cherry (Pink)
3D Cold & Cough Berry
3D Cough Relief Yellow 3D Expectorant

They are asking you to call them at 800-548-3708 with the lot number on the
box so they can send you postage for you to send it back to them, and they
will also issue you a refund. If you know of anyone else with small
children,
PLEASE PASS THIS ON. THIS IS SERIOUS STUFF!

DO PASS ALONG TO ALL ON YOUR MAILING LIST so people are informed. They can
then pass it along to their families... Making sure not to forget anyone in
the family who is "expecting" at this time

To confirm these findings please take time to check the following:
