The Ministry of Justice opened administrative proceedings against Cifarma Pharmaceuticals. The company had omitted information to consumers about the risk to health and safety 3EB03 batch of syrup Bronxol. The order is published in the Official Gazette today (30).

According to the Department of Consumer Protection and Defense, the National Bureau of Consumer Consumer Protection, the Ministry of Justice, the Cifarma should have done a campaign warning about the drug, because some vials of lot 3EB03 with expiration date until April 2014 were labeled with the child presentation, although they are for adult use.
