P&G recalls Vicks DayQuil product


CINCINNATI Procter & Gamble on Friday announced a voluntarily recall of Vicks DayQuil Cold & Flu 24-count LiquiCaps bonus pack in the United States because the product does not contain a child-resistant backing for the blister packs in the box, despite label statements that the product is in child-resistant packaging.

No accidental ingestion by children has been reported with this product, and the medication itself is safe for use when taken as directed, the company stated. However, this product is not intended for use by children under 12, unless recommended by a physician.

The lack of child-resistant packaging means it is possible that a child could gain access to the medicine.

Consumers who purchased this DayQuil 24-count product with the expectation that it was in child-resistant packaging can call P&G at 1-800-251-3374 for a refund or replacement coupon. Anyone with a question can call P&G at this toll-free number or visit
