Last week, over 3 million bottles of Airborne supplement gummies were recalled after several people were allegedly injured after trying to open the bottle.
Reckitt's voluntary recall covered Airborne gummies in 63- and 75-count bottles, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).
"When opened for the first time, pressure build up in the bottle can cause the cap and underlying seal to pop off with force, posing an injury hazard," the CPSC said.
