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.

Consumers with questions are encouraged to contact the Novartis Consumer Relationship Center at 1-866-553-6742 (available Monday-Saturday 8 a.m. to midnight Eastern Time).

According to witn.com, 2.3 million units of Traminic and Theraflu are under recall. One child has needed medical attention after getting into the package, three others took the medicine but were okay, and eight other kids opened the medicine but did not ingest it, says witn.com
