Sandoz recalls prescription drug bottles due to them not being child-resistant

Consumer Alerts

(WVLA) – (9/5/19) This recall involves bottles of prescription medications Losartan Potassium and Ezetimibe from Sandoz with certain lot numbers.

Medication was distributed in these bottles from July 2018 to August 2019, and while there have been no reported injuries, it is safer to check and make sure that any medication received in any such bottle can not be accessed by a child.

If you have received medication in one of the faulty bottles, you are advised to immediately secure the medication out of reach and sight of children and contact Sandoz for a free replacement child resistant bottle cap.

Around 636,000 bottles were handed out with the faulty lids. The failure to be child proof violates the Poison Prevention Packaging Act as it poses a poisoning risk is swallowed by a child.
