Novartis AG has recalled its Triaminic cough-suppressing vapor patches and warns consumers to stop using them immediately. The warning applies to both the mentholated cherry and menthol scented versions. A child suffered a seizure after chewing on one of the patches. Novartis said the patches are to be placed on the chest or throat of children as young as 2 to allow vapors to reach the nose and mouth, but that placement allows the child to remove the patch and place it in his or her mouth.
