Morphine Cough Syrup Risks

The FDA provided the following information:

    ucm482525“Consumers using this product may not be aware they are ingesting morphine. The unaware ingestion of morphine can lead to life-threatening respiratory depression and death. Because the morphine contained in this product is not identified on the label there is a risk that patients who are hypersensitive to morphine could suffer severe allergic reactions. In addition young children with a respiratory illness are vulnerable to respiratory depression from opioids and should not be exposed to morphine in any event.”

Morphine Cough Syrup Recall Details

The recalled Licorice Coughing Liquid can be found in 100 ml bottles; the product may also be identified by the Chinese Product Name: ucm482526

The product was distributed to Chinese grocery stores in various cities in California, New Jersey, Hawaii, Illinois, Ohio and Nevada.
