The makers of Rompe Pecho flu and cold medicines have recalled their products nationwide for the third time in two years because the company suspects microbial contamination. Efficient Laboratories, based in Northwest Miami-Dade, initiated a voluntary recall of Rompe Pecho EX, Rompe Pecho CF, and Rompe Pecho MAX. The three lots listed on the Food & Drug Administration’s recall notice have tested positive for microbial contamination.
Although Efficient Laboratories has not received any complaints to date, they are warning consumers that in rare circumstances consumption of the recalled products could result in vomiting and diarrhea. The liquid product, which was distributed nationwide, is packaged in a box and is used to treat cold and flu symptoms. Consumers may find expiration dates and lot numbers on the bottom of the boxed medicine.
If a consumer is in possession of the affected lots, they are strongly encouraged to immediately stop using the product and discard or return the product to the retailer location where it was purchased.
The affected lots are as follows:
- Rompe Pecho EX lot 19F332, exp June 2022
- Rompe Pecho CF lot 19H359, exp August 2022
- Rompe Pecho MAX lot 19B42, exp February 2022
Efficient Laboratories has begun to contact purchasers of these products by email and is coordinating their return or replacement. If a consumer has questions about this recall, they may contact Efficient Laboratories by phone at (305) 805-3456, Monday through Friday from 9 am to 4:30 pm EST. Any adverse effects experienced due to the ingestion of these products should be immediately reported to an individual’s physician or healthcare provider. Adverse reactions may also be reported to the FDA’s MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting program.
