A drug company has issued a recall for a popular cold medicine.

The Perrigo Company issued a voluntary recall for its four-ounce grape and DM cherry liquid medicine.

Nine retailers are recalling children’s cold medicine sold nationally under a number of brand names.

The cough syrup is sold at stores including Rite-Aid, Kroger, Dollar General and CVS.

The company says the markings on the dosage cups are inaccurate which could potentially lead to an overdose.

There have been no reports of injuries due to an overdose at this time.
