Procter & Gamble has started recalling its Dayquil Cold & Flu 24-Count Bonus Pack Liquicaps because of a packaging and labelling error.

The company is recalling nearly 700,000 units of Canadian-made Vicks cold and cough medicine in the US because it is not in child-resistant packaging.

The US Consumer Product Safety Commission said the medicine contains acetaminophen but lacks a statement that it should not be handled by children, as required by the Poison Prevention Packaging Act.
