Walgreens Vitamins Recalled – Not Child-Safe

Lauren Fernandez1 year ago

Walgreens vitamins have been recalled due to failure to meet child-resistant closure safety standards.

About the Multivitamin Recall

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the multivitamin’s packaging is not child-resistant and senior friendly as required by the Poison Prevention Packaging Act.

The vitamin supplements inside the bottle contain iron, which can cause injury or death to young children if multiple tablets are consumed at once.

CPSC recommends that consumers immediately place the bottles out of reach of children and contact International Vitamin Corp. for a free replacement child-resistant cap.

Description of Recalled Multivitamins

  • The recalled products, “Well at Walgreens” Multivitamin Women 50+ tablets, are packaged in white plastic bottles and contain 200 tablets.
  • The product has a silver and white label which states “Well at Walgreens Multivitamin Women 50+”.
