More than 400K bottles of medication recalled
The Consumer Product Safety Commission on Thursday announced the recall of over 400,000 bottles of over-the-counter medicine due to issues with the child-resistant packaging, which did not meet the requirements in the Poison Prevention Packaging Act.
What companies are recalling:
- Aurohealth recalled about 137,300 units of Walgreens brand acetaminophen, as well as approximately 25,660 units of Kroger brand arthritis pain acetaminophen.
- Time-Cap Lab also recalled about 209,430 units of Kroger brand aspirin and ibuprofen, and Sun Pharma recalled nearly 34,660 units of Kroger brand acetaminophen.
Consumers can contact Aurohealth for information on how to return bottles of the Walgreens brand medicine to their nearest Walgreens store to receive a full refund. They can contact Kroger for information on how to receive a full refund and properly dispose of the recalled Kroger brand medications.
“The packaging of the products is not child resistant, posing a risk of poisoning if the contents are swallowed by young children,” each recall reads.
