AMAZON OTC RECALLS 31 MEDICATIONS DUE TO FAILURE OF MEETING CHILD SAFETY LIMIT

Normally I would group the recalls in one article, however I feel like this is a massive recall/health safety concern that needs its own space to be shared with friends and family and their friends and family, so on and so forth.

Recall number:20-780

Amazon.com from June 2018 through June 2020 for between $2 and $59.

Manufacturer: Medique, of Fort Myers for not meeting Child

Viewers and Consumers should always check with the company the recall is listed with for additional instruction and updates.

The over-the-counter products contain regulated substances which must be in child resistant packaging when being used in the household as required by the Poison Prevention Packaging Act (PPPA).  The packaging of the products is not child resistant, posing a risk of poisoning and in extreme cases death if the contents are swallowed by young children.

NOTE THIS HAS BEEN AN ON-GOING ISSUE SINCE 2018. Even if you havn’t purchased within the past few month does not mean you are out of the danger zone. I advise anyone who has purchased any of these products to look and contact the company especially if you have young children in your home.

Consumer contact information:

Medique at 800-680-2474 from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. ET, Monday through Friday, or online at www.mediqueproducts.com and click on “Recall Notice” at the bottom of the page for more information including registration access. https://mediqueproducts.com/
