The Food and Drug Administration has released a statement announcing that another medication mix-up has been reported, this time involving vitamins manufactured and distributed by Rexall Inc., of Florida.
In accordance with the official reports, customers who purchased Rexall Calcium 1200 mg plus 1000IU Vitamin D3 noted that the bottle actually contained a different kind of tablet.
After several consumer complaints were reported to the company, the bottles were recalled and tested. It was disclosed that the recalled bottles actually contained Triple Strength Glucosamine Chondroitin instead of Calcium 1200 mg.
As of yet there have been no adverse problems reported to the FDA but the agency urges people who suffer from shellfish allergies to return the product immediately since they could have a serious reaction to the glucosamine.
, I’m terribly saddened to hear that the company was only able to address the mistake after consumers realized the issue.
Any personal injury lawyer can tell you of the severe consequences a mislabeled or undeclared ingredient can cause to highly sensitive individuals.
I urge consumers to return this recalled product immediately for a full refund.
