British multinational consumer goods company Reckitt will recall 3.74 million bottles of its Airborne Gummies over a possible injury hazard that can occur when a consumer opens the bottle.

According to the recall notice on Wednesday, the pressure from inside the bottle of Airborne Gummies can build up and, when opened for the first time, can cause the cap and underlying seal to pop off with force, which can create an injury hazard.

As many as 70 reports of the cap or seal popping off the bottles of the gummies have been received, with 18 reports of minor injuries and one report of a minor eye injury that required medical attention, according to the recall notice.

Reckitt said the recall affects both 63- and 75-count bottles of the gummies, which were sold in blueberry, pomegranate, orange, and assorted fruit flavors at nationwide retailers such as Target, Walgreens, CVS, Kroger, Sam’s Club, BJ’s Wholesale Club, Costco, Walmart, and at online at Amazon.com and www.schiffvitamins.com from May 2020 through February 2022.

The cost of the Airborne Gummies ranges from $18 and $33.

The recalled gummies have a UPC number that is located on the product label and a lot code and expiration date that is located on the bottom of the bottle.

Reckitt said that consumers should not attempt to open unopened bottles of the recalled gummies. They should contact the company to return the unopened bottles to receive a full refund through a postage-paid label provided.

Gummies bottles that have been opened do not present an injury hazard as they have released any pressure build-up and are not subject to the recall, the company said.

Questions about the recall can be directed to Reckitt at 1-888-266-8003, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET or online at www.schiffvitamins.com/pages/airborne-recall or www.schiffvitamins.com by clicking on “Recalls” at the bottom of the page for more information.
