AAFES Removes Selected Products Containing Pseudoephedrine from Shelves
07/05/2005

The Army & Air Force Exchange Service (AAFES) will remove products containing the solid form of pseudoephedrine from all store shelves effective July 31. These items include Advil Flu & Sinus, Aleve Cold & Sinus, Claritin D and Tylenol Allergy Sinus. The affected items will be replaced with products containing phenylephrine, an acceptable substitute for pseudoephedrine, as a relief for sinus congestion. AAFES has already identified the replacement products, and will start shipping them to AAFES stores in July before the start of the cold and cough season. To date, 16 states have passed legislation restricting the availability of cough and cold medicines containing the drug pseudoephedrine in solid form. AAFES has decided that removal of these products from all of its stores is in the best interest of all military communities.

AAFES is committed to maintaining safe communities by supporting all local, state and national initiatives to combat the manufacture of illicit drugs.
