The UAE's Ministry of Health and Prevention has withdrawn a batch of medicine after finding its label contained incorrect information.

According to the health authorities, a batch of Laxocodyl suppositories were incorrectly labelled for children instead of "for adults".

Officials said the mistake could've resulted in the wrong dosage, leading to harmful side-effects.

The medicine, which is manufactured locally by Julphar Gulf, is used to treat constipation.
