Nurofen Plus back on shelves

30th September 2011

Nurofen Plus is to go back on sale with tamper-proof wrapping.

It follows the withdrawal of the product from sale after contaminated packs were found. The new stock will start appearing in pharmacies next week and makers Reckitt Benckiser said the new packs would be individually wrapped in clear plastic. A 30-year-old man from south London has been remanded in custody after five Nurofen Plus packs were found to contain anti-psychotic and anti-epileptic drugs. Christopher McGuire is charged with one count of contaminating goods and two of administering a noxious substance.
