SUB-TYPE: CLASS 4 CAUTION IN USE

Class 4 Drug (Caution in use) - Benylin Chesty Coughs Original and Benylin Chesty Coughs Non-Drowsy

McNeil Products Limited have identified an error relating to the stated alcohol content for batches of Benylin Chesty Coughs Original (P) and Benylin Chesty Coughs Non-Drowsy (GSL) whereby the product labels understate the ethanol values. The products comply with the defined specifications, including ethanol content and, other than the incorrect ethanol content, all other label information is correct. However, the amount of ethanol contained within the products is low and hence the related on-pack safety warning, which reads “The small amount of alcohol in this medicine will not have any noticeable effects.”, is correct.
