In the recall notification, the Rwanda FDA stated that reference is made to the public alert No. 013/2024 dated April 10th, 2024, issued by the Nigerian National Agency for Food and Drugs Administration and Control (NAFDAC), notifying the recall of Batch No.329304 of Benylin Pediatrics Syrup manufactured by Johnson & Johnson (Pvt).

NAFDAC states that “Laboratory analysis conducted on the product showed that it contains an unacceptable high level of diethylene glycol and was found to cause acute oral toxicity in laboratory animals,” which may pose a toxicity risk to humans.
