Pharmaceutical giant Pfizer is recalling 4.2 million prescription drug packages for failing to meet child-resistant requirements, according to federal safety regulators.
The recall involves Pfizer's Nurtec ODT 75 mg orally disintegrating tablets sold in cartons containing one blister card of eight tablets, according to a notice posted by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).
The packaging of the products is not child resistant, as required by the Poison Prevention Packaging Act, which poses "a risk of poisoning if the contents are swallowed by young children," the CPSC said.
