Triaminic and Theraflu bottles recalled

Posted:
UNDATED (WREX) -

Two popular cold and flu medicines are being recalled due to problems with child-resistant caps.

About 2.3 million bottles of Triaminic and Theraflu have been recalled for child safety caps possibly failing. Pharmaceutical maker Novartis issued the voluntary recall after four children reportedly ingested the medicine by accident after getting past the child-resistant caps. One child needed medical attention.

The recalled products were made before January of 2012, so the majority of products are likely off store shelves.
