Alberta’s Opposition says it’s time to dump once and for all the remaining bottles of imported Turkish children’s fever medicine, given a new report states the liquid clogs hospital feeding tubes and can put newborns at risk of severe illness.

NDP health critic Luanne Metz says Premier Danielle Smith’s United Conservative Party government should check with health specialists to see if the medicine can safely be put to use somewhere else in the world.

Regardless, she says, it’s time to end the experiment in Alberta.

“We really should not be using this in our emergency departments,” Metz, who is also a physician, said Wednesday in an interview.
