A potential defect with the tamper seal that could lead to plastic getting into the bottles was discovered.

Whilst no pieces of plastic have been found in Tixylix® medicines and the potential occurrence of this defect is very low, as a precaution, we are recalling the batches from consumers, retail customers and wholesalers in the UK.
