    Orange3D Cold &Allergy Cherry (Pink)
    3D Cold &Cough Berry
    3D Cough Relief Yellow 3D Expectorant

    They are asking you to call them at 800-548-3708 with
    the lot number on the box so they can send you postage for you
    to send it back to them, and they will also issue you a refund.
    If you know of anyone else with small children,
    PLEASE PASS THIS ON. THIS IS SERIOUS STUFF!

    DO PASS ALONG TO ALL ON YOUR MAILING LIST so people are informed They can then pass it along to their families.

    To confirm these findings please take time to check the following:
