There has been a recall of some packages of Advil Cold & Sinus due to a mislabeling issue.


Two lots of Advil Cold & Sinus Day/Night Convenience Pack are being recalled as the labelling error may cause confusion between daytime and nighttime tablets.

Some nighttime capsules were mistakenly labelled as daytime capsule, and daytime capsules were labelled as nighttime capsules.

Consumers will be able to see the difference between the two despite the mislabeling as daytime capsule are beige with ‘Advil Cold & Sinus’ written in black ink while nighttime capsules are orange and have the marking ‘Advil A/S.’

The nighttime capsule can cause drowsiness and could have serious health consequences for people operating heavy machinery, people who have taken other sedatives or tranquilizers, and the elderly.

Day/Night Convenience Packs in 18 and 36 caplet packages are affected.

Health Canada says mistakenly taking a nighttime caplet could result in serious health consequences for those who need to remain alert, such as when driving, or who have taken other sedatives, consumed alcohol or are elderly.

The affected products were distributed in Canada starting last July. The lot numbers are ER2072 or ER2069, both with expiry dates of February 2023.
