Why are you doing a voluntary recall of this product?

We are taking this precautionary measure, in consultation with the Philippine FDA (Food and Drug Administration), upon learning of the potential presence of ethylene glycol above the allowable limits in a raw material. Though the issue only impacted some batches, we are recalling all batches out of an abundance of caution.

What are the risks?

Nothing is more important to us than the safety of our consumers and the quality of our products. The potential presence of ethylene glycol in the product may result in adverse drug reactions. That is why even though our inspections and tests are still on-going, we have decided to proactively recall all batches still in circulation to ensure our consumers only get products that meet P&G’s quality promise.

If your child has consumed the product and experienced adverse reaction including the following: vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, headache, altered mental state, symptoms of acute kidney injury like inability to pass or reduced urine, or lower back pain, or additional symptoms of irritability, lethargy, pale appearance, decreased muscle tone, and loss of appetite in younger kids, please contact the National Poison Management and Control Center at (02) 85241078 and seek urgent medical attention and please report to the FDA: or at the P&G Consumer Care contacts above.

As one of the leading consumer health companies in the world, P&G will always comply with the law and regulations where our business operates. We continue to work with the FDA, our customers, and consumers in taking the necessary actions on this matter.

P&G sincerely regrets the inconvenience caused to our customers and consumers.

Blood as a Life Force

There is power in your blood. About 5 litres of blood is pumped through your body every minute. Blood is a living tissue that flows through thousands of kilometres of blood vessels, delivering oxygen and nutrients to the organs and carrying waste products away. Blood also transports cells, hormones and proteins that regulate many body functions such as fighting infection and controlling blood loss.

Blood as a life force


  • Transports oxygen and nutrients to the tissues

  • Regulates body temperature

  • Carries cells and antibodies that fight infection

  • Brings waste products to the kidneys and liver, which filter and clean the blood

  • Prevents excess blood loss by forming blood clot



Red blood cells

Red blood cells are responsible for carrying oxygen from your lungs to parts of your body, in addition to removing waste products like carbon dioxide. A low amount of red blood cells indicates anemia, which can result in symptoms like fatigue and feeling short of breath. This can be caused by a number of conditions including blood loss, iron deficiency, and bone marrow diseases.

White blood cells (leukocytes) are part of the body's immune system, attacking bacteria, viruses, and germs that invade the body and cause infections.

A higher-than-normal white blood cell count usually indicates some type of infection or inflammation, while a low amount of white blood cells may be caused by a bone marrow problem, or autoimmune diseases such as lupus.

White blood cells

The smallest of our blood cells, platelets give our blood the ability to clot. Too many platelets can cause spontaneous blood clots in the body which can lead to heart attack and stroke, while too few platelets can cause frequent bruising and bleeding.
