Cipla recalls batches of Coryx Throat Spray

Published on

Cipla Medpro has recalled batches of its Coryx Throat Spray. The company confirmed that the SA Health Products Regulatory Authority (SAHPRA) has been notified.

In a statement, the company says: “The reason for the Class I Type A product recall is due to the possibility of the spray nozzle detaching from the spray mechanism during use resulting in the spray nozzle being ingested or getting stuck in the throat after detaching.”

People who purchased any of these batches of Coryx Throat Spray are requested to return it to their pharmacy, and they will be refunded the purchase price.

The Chief Executive Officer of Cipla South Africa, Paul Miller said: “The safety and well-being of our patients is our utmost priority. Therefore, after liaising with SAHPRA, it was deemed necessary to recall specific batches of this product from the market. We are working closely with spray mechanism manufacturers to ensure there is no margin for error in future.”

Coryx Throat Spray is used for discomfort and pain in throats caused by colds. It can also be used for minor irritations in the mouth.

The product comes in an amber glass bottle with a screw cap. Cipla said the spray mechanism is co-packed separately in the box.

These are the affected batch numbers of Coryx Throat Spray that has been recalled:
