Court orders Nurofen products off the shelves

Pain-specific brands of Nurofen are to be removed from sale after the Federal Court found they are identical to regular Nurofen, but sold at twice the price.

In a case brought by the ACCC, the court ruled of four Nurofen specific pain products is misleading because claims that they are formulated to treat a specific type of pain are not accurate as they  all contain the same ibuprofen ingredient.
