A recent development in some African countries amongst which are Cameroon, Nigeria, Kenya and The Gambia, has seen a batch of Johnson & Johnson’s children’s cough syrup under the Benylin brand being recalled due to elevated levels of a toxic substance known as Diethylene glycol. This substance poses a significant health risk to children, potentially leading to severe health complications and even death.

This recall comes in the wake of similar incidents in Cameroon and The Gambia, where tragic outcomes were linked to the consumption of the same cough syrup. Despite requests for comments, neither Johnson & Johnson nor the Benylin brand’s owner, Kenvue, have provided immediate responses.

Parents and caregivers are urged to check their supplies and immediately discontinue the use of any affected bottles of the Benylin children’s cough syrup. Health authorities are working diligently to ensure the safety and well-being of children, emphasizing the importance of vigilance when it comes to medication intended for young ones.
