Some Triaminic, Theraflu recalled after kids accidentally ingest medicine

therafluThe manufacturer of Triaminic and Theraflu has voluntarily recalled more than 2 million units of the cold medications because the child-resistant caps didn’t work.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says the cap could still be removed by a child even with the tamper-resistant seal in place.

Four children accidentally ingested the medications.

The manufacturer says the last batch of products in question were distributed more than a year ago.
