Drug company Novartis announced today they are recalling several batches of their cough syrup Tixylix over fears that the medicine may contain small pieces of plastic.

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.
