Novartis Consumer Health Recalls Certain Lots of Triaminic and Theraflu, Concerned about Child Resistance

Novartis Consumer Health Inc. is reporting on its Web site that it is "voluntarily recalling certain lots of Triaminic Syrups and Theraflu Warming Relief Syrups that were manufactured in the United States before December 31, 2011." The company reports that it is recalling the lots "because the child-resistant feature of the bottle cap may not function properly, enabling the cap to be removed with the tamper-evident seal still in place," it states on its Web site.

Novartis Consumer Health reports on its Web site that "the Triaminic products that were reintroduced in October 2012 are not part of the voluntary recall."

According to the Novartis Consumer Health's Web site, products recalled include the following (please visit the Web site for specific lot numbers affected):
