It's cold and flu season and unfortunately, two of the products people could turn to for relief could turn out to be quite dangerous.

According to the FDA, Haleon issued a voluntary recall this week that included eight lots of Robitussin Honey CF Max Day Adult and Robitussin Honey CF Max Nighttime Adult that had been available for the public to purchase.

Robitussin Honey CF Max Day and Nighttime are cough syrups indicated for the temporary relief of symptoms occurring with cold or flu, hay fever, or other respiratory allergies. The products are being recalled due to microbial contamination.

The FDA notes that in immunocompromised individuals, the use of the affected product could potentially result in severe or life-threatening adverse events such as fungemia or disseminated fungal infection.

They add that in non-immunocompromised consumers, which is the population most likely to use the product, life-threatening infections are not likely to occur. However, the occurrence of an infection that may necessitate medical intervention cannot be completely ruled out.

Haleon has not yet received any reports of adverse events related to this recall.
