Vornado space heaters, xtava hair dryers, Manhattan Toy lanes recalled

SAN ANTONIO – Certain bottles of bubble-gum flavored Children's Advil have been recalled over concerns of possible overdosing. Pfizer is recalling one lot because of a packaging mistake.

According to the company, the dosage cup provided in the package is marked in teaspoons, while the instructions are written in milliliters, which could potentially lead to giving too much medicine to a child.

Consumers are urged to return the recalled products to the store for a refund. 

The lot in question is:

Children's Advil Suspension Bubble Gum Flavored 4fl. oz. Bottle
Lot #: R51129
Expiration Date: 11/20

The company didn't say whether it had received any reports of incidents. The most common symptoms associated with ibuprofen overdose include nausea, vomiting, headache, drowsiness, blurred vision and dizziness. 

Vornado reannounced its earlier recall of 350,000 personal space heaters after a fire killed an elderly Minnesota man.

The small, portable Vortex electric space heaters with model number VH101 were sold in a variety of colors. 

The company said they have received 19 reports of heaters catching fire. 

They were sold  from 2008 through March 2018 at several retailers including Bed Bath & Beyond, Home Depot, Target and Amazon.com.
