01.31.13 Triaminic and Theraflu Products Recalled Due to Failure to Meet Child-Resistant Closure Requirement; Risk of Poisoning
Novartis Consumer Health, Inc. (NCH) is voluntarily recalling about 2.3 million units of Triaminic and Theraflu cold and cough syrups that were manufactured in the United States before December 31, 2011.
Novartis Consumer Health has decided to issue a voluntary recall to consumers, retail customers and wholesalers in the U.S. because the child-resistant feature of the bottle cap may not function properly, enabling the cap to be removed with the tamper-evident seal still in place. The firm has received 12 reports of children unscrewing the locked caps, including four reports of children ingesting the product. One child required medical attention.
There are 24 types of these two products included in the recall. A complete list of products, lot numbers and National Drug Codes (NDC) can be found at www.novartisOTC.com.
Sold at: Food, drug, mass merchandise and club stores nationwide between May 2010 and December 2011 for about $5.
