Several PhysiciansCare over-the-counter brand drugs sold on Amazon and FSAstore are being recalled because they failed to meet child-resistant packaging requirements.

The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission said Acme United recalled five products because the product's packaging is not child-resistant which poses a risk of poisoning if young children swallow the contents.

The company said about 165,000 drugs that are being recalled were purchased from February 2014 through June 2021.
