The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission issued a recall on certain over-the-counter products that contain the regulated substance acetaminophen. The recall pertains to a risk of poisoning regarding the child-resistant packaging this substance requires. As this substance is regulated, the packaging it comes in must be child-resistant as required by the Poison Prevention Packaging Act (PPPA). However, the packaging of some of these products are not child-resistant, posing a risk of poisoning if the contents are swallowed by a young child.

The recall involves Walgreens brand acetaminophen products. The products involved have a red and white label that states Walgreens, Easy Open for Adults, Pain Reliever, Acetaminophen, 500 mg, Fever Reducer, Extra Strength, 150 caplets. The recalled products involve UPC number 311917218090 and Lot numbers P2100627, P2100671, P2100672, P2100689 P2100747, P2100859, each with an expiration date of November 2022, and P2200050, with an expiration date of January 2023. These numbers and expiration dates are printed near the drug facts panel on the label on the back of the bottle.

Consumers should immediately store the recalled products in a safe location out of reach for children. These products can be returned to your nearest Walgreens store to receive a full refund if needed.
