5 Excedrin products recalled over faulty packaging, risk of poisoning

WISCONSIN (CBS 58) -- The US Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the recall of five Excedrin products Wednesday, Dec. 23, due to faulty packaging.

The commission says some of the bottles containing the over-the-counter drug have a hole in the bottom where children could access and swallow the contents, posing a risk of poisoning. 

The affected products include 50, 80, 100, 125, 200, 250 and 300-count bottles of Excedrin Migraine Caplets, Excedrin Migraine Geltabs, Excedrin Extra Strength Caplets, Excedrin PM Headache Caplets, and Excedrin Tension Headache Caplets.

Consumers should immediately store the recalled bottles out of sight and reach of children and check the packaging for any holes. If there is a hole in the bottle, contact GSK Consumer Relations for information on how to receive a prepaid shipping label for return to receive a full refund. Bottles without a hole can be retained and used as directed.

The commission says these products were sold at pharmacies, department stores, grocery stores and hypermarkets nationwide and online from March 2018-September 2020 for between $7 and $18.
