Additional information:
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports the child-resistant caps can fail to function properly and enable the cap to be removed by a child with the tamper-evident seal in place. 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.

CPSC recall number: 13-114
