This poses a risk of unintentional ingestion and poisoning for the 24 variants of the two products included in this recall. These products contain Acetaminophen and Diphenhydramine, both of which are required by the Poison Prevention Packaging Act to be sealed with child-resistant packaging.

Please note: this is a joint recall with Health Canada.
