Scope mouthwash recalled over cap defect

Consumer-products giant Procter & Gamble is recalling 1-liter bottles of its signature Scope mouthwash due to concerns that some of the bottles lack child-resistant caps and may not be safely used in households with young children.

The 35,000 bottles affected by the recall feature the brand's Original Mint and Peppermint flavors and were sold at drug stores, grocery stores and other retailers in the U.S. and Canada between January and June 2010. They have the number 4 on the bottom, to the right of the recycling symbol. This number indicates that a product may not be child-resistant.
