NEW YORK — Pfizer is recalling bubble gum-flavored children’s Advil over a labeling mixup. 

Parents complained that dosage instructions on the four-ounce bottle don’t match what’s written on the dosage cup.  The label gives instructions in milliliters, but the cup’s instructions are marked in teaspoons. 

Pfizer says the mix-up could cause a potential ibuprofen overdose, so it’s recalling all bubble-gum flavored Children’s Advil sold nationwide between May and June.

The most common symptoms associated with ibuprofen overdose include nausea, vomiting, headache, drowsiness, blurred vision and dizziness, according to the Food and Drug Administration. 

The lot number of the recalled medicine is R51129 with an expiration date of 11-20.
