Kroger, Walgreens recall medications over poison concerns

Labs that supply Walgreens and Kroger recall more than 400,000 medication bottles that violate child safety regulations.

According to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission, there’s nothing wrong with the medication, but the bottles don’t meet standards for child resistance. This means a child could open them and accidentally ingest the medications inside.

The bottles contain the pain relievers acetaminophen, ibuprofen and aspirin.
