3.7 Million Gummy Bottles Recalled After Cap Explosion Injuries

A bottle of supplements
The manufacturer of Airborne Gummies is issuing a product defect recall for about 3.7 million bottles of the supplements after 18 cap explosion injuries. Manufacturers launched the recall because the bottles could pose an injury hazard when opened for the first time. According to a USA Today news report, the manufacturer, Reckitt (also known as RB Health (US) LLC), has received 70 reports of the cap or seal popping off the bottles with great force. Such incidents have caused 18 cap explosion injuries and one incident where the consumer suffered an eye injury that required medical attention.

Details of the Cap Explosion Injuries and Recall

This recall is for select 63- and 75-count bottles of Airborne Gummies in blueberry, pomegranate, orange, and assorted fruit flavors. Already opened bottles are not included in this recall because they would have “released any pressure buildup” and wouldn’t pose the same dangers of cap explosion injuries, Reckitt says in a recall notice. The affected products were sold at several retailers, including Target, Walgreens, CVS, Kroger, Sam’s Club, BJ’s Wholesale Club, Costco, Walmart, and others nationwide as well as online on and from May 2020 through February 2022 for between $18 and $33. The UPC numbers are on the product label, and lot codes and expiration dates are on the bottom of the bottle. The affected products are listed at and For more information, call Reckitt at 888-266-8003 or visit their website,

Defective Design

As product defect lawyers, we see a lot of cases where consumers are injured – sometimes severely – as a result of defective product design. Product manufacturers must exercise care during the manufacturing processes and when they design products. Products that are badly designed, ranging from this simple bottle of vitamins to a car or SUV, can cause severe or devastating injuries. In this case, the cap explosion injuries have been serious in some instances. Suppose you or a loved one has been injured by these or other defectively designed or manufactured products. In that case, you may be able to seek compensation for your injuries, damages, and losses. Injured victims can seek compensation for medical expenses, lost income, cost of ongoing treatment, permanent injuries, disabilities, and past and future pain and suffering. An experienced product defect attorney can help you better understand your legal rights and options.   Source:
