35,000 Bottles Of Scope Recalled For Defective Caps

If you have a 1-liter bottle of Scope Original Mint Mouthwash that you bought sometime since January 1st, you might want to test the cap. If it twists off without needing the sides pressed in and it’s a got the number 4 stamped onto the bottom, Procter & Gamble would like to replace it, please.

The company says about 35,000 bottles may not be child-resistant, and it’s offering either a coupon or a refund to those who want to trade up to a childproof version.

The actual mouthwash inside is just fine, though. I mean, it’s not like this stuff was made at a Johnson & Johnson plant.
