Do you have an unopened bottle of Airborne gummies in your cabinet right now? It might be part of a huge recall over reports of the caps on the bottles causing injuries.
About 3.74 million bottles of the gummies are being voluntarily recalled after the manufacturer received various injury reports, the Consumer Product Safety Commission website announced.
CPSC said the manufacturer, Reckitt, received "70 reports of the cap or seal popping off the bottles, including 18 reports of minor injuries and one report of an eye injury requiring medical attention." Pressure built up in the bottles, so the caps could pop off when people opened them for the first time.
The recall only applies to 63 and 75 count bottles of Airborne gummies, sold in blueberry pomegranate, orange and assorted fruit flavors. Some of the gummies were for kids.
The recalled gummies were sold at Target, Walgreens, CVS, Kroger, Sam’s Club, BJ’s Wholesale Club, Costco, Walmart and other stores nationwide. They were also sold online through Amazon and Schiff Vitamins. Sales took place from May 2020 to February 2022 for between $18 and $33.
You can see a full list of recalled lot codes on the CPSC website.
If you have unopened bottles of the recalled gummies, "PLEASE DO NOT OPEN the product," says a recall notice on Schiffvitamins.com. According to the notice, already-opened bottles aren't part of the recall since they have already released any built-up pressure. The website has a "lot search tool" you can use to check if your gummies are part of the recall.
