The consumer product maker, based in Cincinnati, said Friday the affected products do not contain child-resistant packaging, despite such labeling claims on the box. P&G includes extra packs of DayQuil Cold & Flu 24-Count LiquiCaps as a special offer during the cold season.
Procter & Gamble says there have been no reports of accidental ingestion by children. DayQuil capsules are not indicated for children younger than 12.
Consumers can contact the company at 1-800-251-3374 for a refund or replacement coupon. Those who continue using the product should keep it out of reach of children, the company says in a statement.
