Health Canada is informing Canadians of a Vita Health Products' voluntary recall of lot 00058398B of the "combo pack" Rexall Extra Strength Sinus Relief Daytime and Nighttime Caplets. The text printed on the back of the blister foil of the product incorrectly identifies the nighttime caplets as the daytime caplets and the daytime caplets as nighttime caplets. The nighttime caplets contain diphenhydramine, a medicine that can causes drowsiness. Health Canada has advised that "Taking a nighttime caplet during the day may result in drowsiness and have safety consequences when engaging in activities requiring alertness, such as driving." Consumers are advised to read the information on the Health Canada site for more information.
