RECALLS: More than 400K OTC pill bottles pose poison risk to children

More than 400,000 over-the-counter pain reliever bottles sold at Kroger and Walgreens are under recall because they do not meet federal child resistant packaging requirements.

The packaging for Walgreens brand acetaminophen and Kroger brand aspirin, ibuprofen and acetaminophen is not child resistant, posing a risk of poisoning if the pills are swallowed by young children, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Consumers immediately should store the recalled projects in a safe location out of reach and sight of children and can return the product at the place of purchase for a full refund.
