Walgreens Brand acetaminophen recalled due to failure to meet packaging requirements
Aurohealth has issued a recall on Walgreens Brand acetaminophen due to the product's failure to meet child-resistant packaging requirements.
The recalled over-the-counter products contain the regulated substance, acetaminophen, which is required to be in child-resistant packaging by the Poison Prevention Packaging Act (PPPA).
The recalled products failed to meet these requirements, in turn posing a risk of poisoning if the contents are swallowed by young children.
Recalled products have the following lot numbers:
These numbers, along with the expiration date can be found on the back of the bottle. Each product has an expiration date of November 2022, with the exception of P2200050, which has an expiration date of January, 2023.
The products were sold between October of 2021 and April of 2022 for about $9 apiece.
Anyone who has purchased the recalled product should keep it out of reach of children and/or return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.
No injuries have been reported from the recalled products at this time.
