December 13, 2013 – Novartis Consumer Health UK LTD (NCH) announced today that it is recalling certain batches of Tixylix®, paediatric liquid cough and cold medicines, because of a potential manufacturing defect with the tamper seal that could result in small pieces of plastic being found in the bottles.
