Proctor & Gamble Co. recalled over 650,000 units of Vicks Dayquil due to the packaging not being child-proof. Vicks Dayquil & Flu 24-Count Bonus Pack Liquicaps are included in the recent recall. The cold medicine was sold in 2008 as well as 2009. The packaging on the medicine lacks any label, warning parents that it is in fact not childproof and that it should be kept out of reach of children. This poses a hazard in regards to children because if a child were to swallow the cold medicine, they could suffer from serious health problems or even result in death. As of yet, no injuries have been linked to the hazardous packaging. Consumers who have purchased the cold medicine are able to receive a full refund for the product.
