(WIVB) – Walgreens is recalling a specific type of their store-brand of multivitamins for women. The “Well at Walgreens Multivitamin Women 50+” bottles with white and silver label are being recalled due to the packaging not being child-resistant and senior-friendly as required.
The vitamin tablets contain iron which can cause serious injury or death to young children if multiple tablets are ingested at once.
A yellow band at the top of the label states “Value Size.” UPC number 3-11917-17262-0 and one of the following lot numbers 000001 (EXP 9/2016), 000002 (EXP 12/2016) or 000003 (EXP 11/2016) are printed on the back of the bottles on a white label.
Consumers should immediately place recalled bottles out of the reach of children and contact International Vitamin Corp. for a free replacement child-resistant cap. Consumers can call toll-free at (866) 927-5470 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or visit www.ivcinc.com and click on Safety Recall Notice at the bottom for more information.
The vitamins were sold exclusively at Walgreens drug stores nationwide from January 2015 through March 2015 for about $16.
