Class 1 Recall

CLASS 1 RECALL - CO-CODAMOL EFF TAB 30/500MG

Zentiva Pharma UK Limited is recalling the below batch of Co-Codamol 30/500 Effervescent Tablets as a precautionary measure due to an issue with the homogeneity of the batch. This issue means that there is the potential for some tablets to have too little active ingredients (codeine phosphate and paracetamol) in them and some tablets to contain too much active ingredients. The current investigation has highlighted that tablets have been identified where the content of both codeine and paracetamol is less than the label claim.
