USA Today: A popular vitamin brand recalled some of its gummy products because they could contain metal.
In a recall notice posted on the Food and Drug Administration website Tuesday, New Jersey-based Church & Dwight said it “initiated a voluntary recall of select vitafusion gummy products after the Company’s investigation of two consumer reports identified the possible presence of a metallic mesh material.”
The products were manufactured from Oct. 29 to Nov. 3, the notice said, and the company is not aware of any reports of consumer illness or injury. However, it said, in “some severe cases, ingesting a metallic material could lead to damage of the digestive tract.”
Two of the products – the kids’ melatonin and Fiber Well 90-count – were sold at Publix grocery stores, according to a recall notice on Publix’s website.
