This particular recall is different from what many might expect; rather than the ingredients being recalled, it is the dosage cup that comes with the medication that is being recalled.

According to Pfizer Consumer Healthcare, the cup “provided in the package is marked in teaspoons, while the instructions on the label are described in milliliters.”
