Zicam Recall Notice Information

    Summary:

    Zicam Cold Remedy Nasal Products (Cold Remedy Nasal Gel, Cold Remedy Nasal Swabs, and Cold
    Remedy Swabs, Kids Size)

    FDA notified consumers and healthcare professionals to discontinue use of three Zicam Nasal Gel/Nasal Swab
    products sold over-the-counter as cold remedies because they are associated with the loss of sense of smell that
    may be long-lasting or permanent. The FDA has received more than 130 reports of loss of sense of smell
    associated with the use of the three Zicam products.  In these reports, many people who experienced a loss of
    smell said the condition occurred with the first dose; others reported a loss of the sense of smell after multiple uses
    of the products. People who have experienced a loss of sense of smell or other problems after use of the affected
    Zicam products should contact their health care professional. The loss of sense of smell can adversely affect a
    person’s quality of life, and can limit the ability to detect the smell of gas or smoke or other signs of danger in the
    environment.
