The health and safety of our consumers is of utmost importance to GSK. We have undertaken a full review of product safety and the manufacturing process and have advised the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA), of our actions. GSK is confident our lozenges currently in market do not pose a safety risk.

GSK has also temporarily suspended production and distribution at our manufacturing site in Aiken, South Carolina, where the nicotine lozenge products are produced, and is focused on correcting the manufacturing issues as soon as possible so we can resume production.

We regret the inconvenience of this recall and supply shortage on our customers and consumers and will provide more information where possible. GSK manufactures a variety of nicotine replacement products such as Nicabate gum and patches, or you can contact your healthcare professional to discuss alternatives in the meantime.
