The maker of Buckley's is voluntarily recalling a number of its syrups because of a choking hazard.

Health Canada says GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare Inc. initiated the recall from stores because the products have a defective plastic seal that may fall into the bottle.

The affected products are all for use by adults or children over 12 years old.

GSK says consumers who have purchased any of the products should not drink from the bottle but pour the syrup into a teaspoon.
