Petrol found in flu medicine.

MORE than 22,000 bottles of a medicine used as a pick-meup after colds and flu were recalled after traces of petrol were discovered.

The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) issued a drug alert about a batch of 300ml bottles of Metatone Tonic.

Chefaro UK Ltd, the product's licence holder, launched the recall because of "very small amounts of petrol in the medicine". There were 22,653 bottles of the tonic in the batch number, 112. People were warned the medicine, which can be sold over the counter, could smell of petrol.
