About 433,600 units of Excedrin bottles have been recalled due to a packaging issue that has left holes in multiple bottles.
Five Excedrin brands – migraine caplets, migraine geltabs, extra strength caplets, PM headache caplets, and tension headache caplets – are included in the recall, which was posted on December 23.
According to GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), which manufactures Excedrin, certain bottles of the migraine medication contain holes in the bottom that could cause a poisoning risk among children with easy access to the pills. The Poison Prevention Packaging Act requires that substances containing aspirin and acetaminophen, like Excedrin, must be protected with child-resistant packaging.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission website says bottles without a hole can continue to be used normally.
GSK said on its website that 24-count bottles of Excedrin extra strength caplets and Excedrin migraine caplets and geltabs were not impacted.
No injuries have been reported, according to USA Today
