4.2M of Pfizer's prescription Nurtec units packaged incorrectly

More than 4 million packets of Pfizer's Nurtec, a migraine prescription drug, need a fix because the container is not child resistant, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said March 16.

The affected products are all Nurtec (rimegepant) orally disintegrating tablets, 75 milligram, eight-unit dose blister packs with expiration dates through June 2026. 

Because the blister card is not child resistant, there is a risk of poisoning if the contents are swallowed by young children. No injuries have been reported. 

Pharmacies nationwide have been contacted.
