FDA warns – 8 lots of Robitussin Honey CF Max Day Adult, Nighttime Adult recalled due to microbial contamination

Haleon, headquartered in Warren, New Jersey, has voluntarily recalled eight lots of Robitussin Honey CF Max Day Adult and Robitussin Honey CF Max Nighttime Adult because the products were found to be contaminated with a microbe, reports the FDA.

Use of the recalled products presents a particular risk to immunocompromised individuals, who could suffer severe, potentially life-threatening adverse health outcomes like “fungemia or disseminated fungal infection.”

While non-immunocompromised people have been identified as those most likely to use the products, and also as those not likely to experience life-threatening infections, the risk of infection that may require medical intervention still exists among this group.

The consumer-level recall of Robitussin Honey CF Max Day and Nighttime, cough syrups designed to provide short-term relief from symptoms associated with “cold or flu, hay fever, or other respiratory allergies,” was first announced by the company on January 24, 2024. It covers the following products under only certain lot numbers and expiry dates:

  • Robitussin Honey CF Max Day Adult 4oz
    • Lot Number: T10810
    • Expiry Date: 31OCT2025
  • Robitussin Honey CF Max Day Adult 8oz
    • Lot Numbers: T08730, T08731, T08732, T08733, T10808
    • Expiry Dates: 31MAY2025, 31MAY2025, 31MAY2025, 31MAY2025, 30SEP2025
  • Robitussin Honey CF Max NT Adult 8oz
    • Lot Numbers: T08740, T08742
    • Expiry Dates: 30JUN2026, 30JUN2026

While Haleon has not been alerted to any reports of illness or adverse events connected to the recall, the company has since instructed its distributors and customers to return the affected products. Any customer who may be in possession of any item listed above is urged to cease all use. Haleon’s Consumer Relations team may be contacted by phone at +1-800-245-1040, Monday through Friday, from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Eastern time. Customers are also invited to email the company at mystory.us@haleon.com.

Anyone experiencing adverse health events related to use of the products should consult their healthcare provider.

As the FDA continues to monitor the recall, the agency encourages consumers to report adverse reactions to its MedWatch program.
