Thank you so much for posting this. I hadn't heard about it and with an asthmatic 2yr old, he can't tell me if it doesn't seem like its the correct dose!
Off to check them all now.

I knew it! I knew there was something wrong with the last two I bought!  I considered taking them back but thought I'd appear silly and couldn't recall which chemist I'd got them from. Oh well, due to the double dosing I had to do they're all gone now.  

Thanks for posting. If it happens again I'll swap them.

Me too. I thought it was weird that DD#2 and I needed more ventolin than normal.

If anyone does find they have some. Doesn't matter which chemist you bought it from. I swapped mine over so easy no problem at all. I didn't know if I would have drama's as I couldn't even remember whose ventolin they were technically. (Myself and all 3 DD's are asthmatic) But they just took them and swapped them over no questions asked. original.gif

Thank you for posting this. My DH and most of his immediate family are asthmatics. Just checked DH's ventolin and his isn't from a batch affected.

Will let my MIL and the rest of the family know to check theirs, just in case.
