Two popular cold medications are being pulled off the shelf because the child-resistant caps don’t work.

Triaminic syrups and Theraflu Warming relief syrups have been recalled.

Safety officials say the caps on the bottles can still be removed by a child even with the tamper-resistant seal in place.

The last batch of products being recalled were sold about a year ago.

    Really? so put your drugs where your kids can't get to them and you won't have a problem.
    Makes them go get their own and become self sufficient – HA : )

    minus the 'go get them on their own' part, MeatPlow is right. We wouldn't need child-resistant caps if parents would do their job and keep meds picked up. Put them away and educate your children. Just PARENT…. geez…
