Medique recalled 31 different over-the-counter drugs purchased on or after June 1, 2018 that are unexpired from the product lines: Medi-First, Medi-First Plus, Medique, Dover, Otis Clapp, and Ecolab, according to the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The products were sold exclusively on Amazon.com from June 2018 through June 2020 for between $2 and $59.

They include aspirin-containing products, acetaminophen-containing products, ibuprofen-containing products, lidocaine-containing products, diphenhydramine, loperamide, and naproxen products.

The recalled drugs failed to meet the child-resistant packaging, posing a risk of poisoning if the contents are swallowed by young children.

The over-the-counter products contain regulated substances which must be in child-resistant packaging when being used in the household as required by the Poison Prevention Packaging Act or PPPA.

Consumers were asked to immediately store the recalled products in a safe location out of reach of children and contact Medique for information on how to dispose of the product and receive a full refund.

No injuries or adverse incidents have been reported so far related to the recalled products.
