Cold medications recalled

Some cold medications are being taken off the market because the child-resistant caps failed to function properly.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) says Triaminic Syrups and Theraflu Warming Relief Syrups for cough, colds and fevers were voluntarily recalled by the manufacturer, Novartis Consumer Health Inc.

The CPSC says the cap could still be removed by a child even with the tamper-reistant seal in place.

The manufacturer says the last batch of products in question were distributed more than a year ago.
