Triaminic and Theraflu Products Being Recalled
Faulty child-resistant caps are the reason.
The maker of Triaminic and Theraflu productshas voluntarily recalled 24 products because of faulty child-resistant caps, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said Thursday.
"Triaminic Syrups and Theraflu Warming Relief Syrups for cough, colds and fevers were voluntarily recalled by the manufacturer, Novartis Consumer Health, because the cap could still be removed by a child even with the tamper-resistant seal in place," CNN reported.
The immediate risk to consumers is low, because the affected bottles were "distributed between May 24, 2010, and December 21, 2011, approximately 97% of the Theraflu and Triaminic inventory has already been consumed, returned to Novartis, or quarantined at a Novartis warehouse," according to CNN.
