Unidentified Morphine Found in Cough Syrup

The labeling—written in two languages—does not identify the morphine in English versions.

The FDA is advising people to not use Licorice Coughing Liquid, an over-the-counter cough syrup product, because it contains unidentified morphine.

The cough syrup’s labeling contains information written in English and Chinese, but the English labeling does not identify the presence of morphine.

This product is manufactured by Ma Ying Long Pharmaceutical Group in China and distributed in the U.S. by Master Herbs USA, Inc. in Pomona, California. The distributor has agreed to recall the product.
