Rexall recalls calcium supplements (1/25/2012)
Rexall Inc. in Deerfield Beach recalled more than 13,500bottles of calcium soft-gel capsules because they mistakenly were filled with tablets of the wrong product.
A company spokesman said Tuesday the recall involves 60-capsule bottles of Rexall Calcium 1200 mg plus 1000IUVitamin D3, sold at Dollar General. The glucosamine tablets mistakenly put in the bottles are made from shellfish that can cause allergic reactions.
No illnesses have been reported, and the company said many of the bottles were removed before they were distributed to retail stores.
The affected bottles carry the UPC code 3 01220 45211 3, expiration date 8/15 and lot number 387651-04. Return for a refund. Information: 888-534-6370 or fda.gov/safety/recalls.
