Vicks Dayquil Cold & Flu Liquicaps Recalled by Procter & Gamble Due To Failure to Meet Child-Resistant Closure Requirement

The Proctor & Gamble Company voluntarily recalled approximately 700,000 Vicks Dayquil Cold & Flu 24-Count Bonus Pack Liquicaps (UPC#: 3 23900 01087 1) sold nationwide in drug stores, grocery stores and other retail establishments between September 2008 and December 2009. The cold and flu medicine contains acetaminophen and is not in child-resistant packaging and lacks the statement, “This Package for Households Without Young Children,” as required by the Poison Prevention Packaging Act. The recalled Vicks Dayquil Liquicaps could cause serious health problems or death to a child if several of the capsules are swallowed. The recalled Vicks Dayquil Liquicaps should be kept out of the reach of children. Consumers and users should contact Procter & Gamble for more information.
