In conjunction with the Consumer Product Safety Commission ("CPSC"), Medique is undertaking a product recall for one or more of its over-the-counter health care products purchased through Amazon.com in the last two years. The CPSC has issued a Recall Alert outlining the details of the recall.
In summary, Medique is recalling its products that contain one or more of the following seven active ingredients:
There are no known issues with the quality of the pills or cream in the packaging. Rather, they are being recalled because the packaging in which they were sold is not child resistant as required by the Poison Prevention Packaging Act (PPPA), posing a risk of poisoning if the contents are swallowed by young children. Therefore, under the terms of the PPPA, these products should not have been made available for sale through avenues where they could be purchased by consumers where the products enter the household. Recalling the product removes the risk that a young child may gain access to the pills or the cream.
You can identify the active ingredient on the side of the box and on the envelopes or tubes in which these products came. The Recall Alert also provides the name and a photograph of each such product subject to recall.
