More than 400,000 Kroger and Walgreens drug bottles recalled

Medicines were sold in retail stores across the country till March 2022.

(Noticius YA) — Because the packaging was deemed unsafe, more than 400,000 drug bottles, including aspirin, ibuprofen, and acetaminophen, were withdrawn from the market because of a childproof safety mechanism in the lid.

Not really a problem with the medicine, but the risk that a child could open the container and take the medicine is reason enough for them to withdraw.

“The product packaging was not child-restrictive, posing a risk of poisoning if ingested by infants,” the Consumer Product Safety Commission said in a statement.
