Leiner just can’t catch a break lately. In an announcement made on June 6th, Leiner Health Products Inc. announced that it is recalling its 32 ounce plastic bottles of Liquimax Complete Nutrition Multivitamin Formula, labeled with UPC Code 7497052290, 7497023607, or 7497023696 because the product may contain undeclared fish (not shellfish), tree nuts (almonds, pecans and/or walnuts), and wheat. People who have allergies to fish, tree nuts and/or wheat run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.
The recalled Liquimax Multivitamin was distributed nationwide in retail stores.
Leiner has been made aware of the presence of these allergens after receiving consumer reports of an allergic reaction. The company is aggressively investigating the situation, and currently believes a certain number of bottles of the product contain the listed allergens. Further, Leiner has consulted with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the agency is aware of the Company's actions.
