Liter bottles of Scope recalled for loose lids

CINCINNATI — Consumer products maker The Procter & Gamble Co. on Friday recalled certain one-liter bottles of Scope Original Mint and Scope Peppermint mouthwash in the U.S. and Canada because their child-resistant caps might malfunction.

P&G said it is voluntarily recalling the items after it found the cap does not work in a "small percentage" of bottles.

The recalled bottles have a number 4 on the bottom to the far right of the recycling symbol. Consumers can discard the affected bottle and contact P&G at 1-877-340-8825 for a full refund or a coupon.

Or, P&G said, consumers can try twisting the cap to open it without squeezing the sides and, if it opens, it is defective.

The product itself is not defective, P&G said, so consumers also have the option of continuing to use it — as long as they keep it out of reach of children.

P&G is removing the affected bottles from store shelves.

Shares fell 59 cents to $60.29 during afternoon trading.
