New Zealand Stock Not Affected By Recall
TRAVELLERS to Australia who may have purchased Herron Paracetamol, a product currently being recalled, are advised not to use the paracetamol and to contact Regional Health Limited on freephone 0508 650 938.
Herron Pharmaceuticals is recalling all paracetamol products in Australia, following the discovery of a tampered package in a Brisbane (Queensland) supermarket.
The company had previously distributed products in New Zealand, however this stopped six months ago. Any stock still available in New Zealand is not affected by the recall.
Herron Pharmaceutical Chief Executive Officer Euan Murdoch said, "Our primary concern is for the safety of our consumers."
"At this stage only one package has been discovered to have been tampered with. We are acting responsibly and recalling all paracetamol products as a precautionary measure."
"There is no evidence at this stage to suggest that any paracetamol products outside Brisbane, or any other Herron products are effected in any way."
