The International Vitamin Corporation is recalling about 12,000 bottles of Live Better vitamins due to failure to meet child-resistant closure requirements.
The iron supplements are not in child-resistant packaging as required by the Poison Prevention Packaging Act. Ingesting multiple iron supplement tablets at once can cause serious injury or death to young children.
The recalled supplements were sold in white plastic bottles. "Live Better Complete Multivitamin One Daily Maximum Formula" is printed in blue and red on a white label on one product and "Live Better Complex Vitamin B50" is printed in blue and green on a white label on the other product.
The vitamins were sold at A& P Liquor, A&P, Pathmark, Waldbaum’s, The Food Emporium, Super Fresh and Food Basics grocery stores in CT, NY, NJ, PA, DE, MD, MA, VA and the District of Columbia between June 2009 and October 2010 for about $8.
Consumers should keep this product out of reach of children and call International Vitamin Corporation to receive a free replacement child-resistant cap.
