Novartis Consumer Health is recalling 2.3 million Triaminic and Theraflu products that fail to meet child-resistant closure requirements.

This recall involves Triaminic Syrups and Theraflu Warming Relief Syrups for coughs, colds and fevers. The caps on these products could potentially be removed by a child with the tamper-evident seal in place, posing a risk of unintentional ingestion and poisoning.

These products contain acetaminophen and diphenhydramine which are required by the Poison Prevention Packaging Act to be sealed with child-resistant packaging.

There are 24 types of these two products included in the recall.

Lot numbers are located on the bottom panel of the box and on the left side of the label on the bottle. The NDC number is located on the upper right corner of the front panel of the Triaminic Syrups box and the upper left corner of the Theraflu Warming Relief Syrups bottle.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled products and contact Novartis for instructions on how to return the product for a full refund.
