Additional information:
US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports this recall involves certain bottles of Multivitamins, as follows:

  • Vthrive Bioactive Women’s One-Daily Multi Vitamins, sold in dark amber bottles with a gray top each containing 60 capsules. The phrases, “Vthrive” and “Bioactive Women’s One-Daily Multi” can be found printed on a blue label on the bottle along with an item number of VS-6104 and batch/lot designations of 006218, 006454, 006495 or 006779 (found printed on the bottle’s underside).

Please consult the photograph above for details of the drug’s packaging, design and retail presentation. Additional images of the recalled Vthrive Bioactive Women’s One-Daily Multi Vitamin products can be found on the Web site listed above.

==> No NDCs, DINs, item numbers, best-before date codes, manufacturing date codes, production dates, expiry dates, regulatory approval designations, registration numbers, agency approval designations or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.

According to the CPSC, this recall was initiated because the Multi Vitamin products contain the chemical element Iron, a substance that must be sold and stored in child resistant packaging as required by the US Poison Prevention Packaging Act (“PPPA”). The packaging of the recalled Vthrive Bioactive Women’s One-Daily Multi Vitamins is reportedly not child resistant, posing a poisoning risk if the contents are swallowed by young children.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Vthrive Bioactive Women’s One-Daily Multi Vitamins please do not use them. Instead, The Vitamin Shoppe for instructions on how to safety dispose of the product and receive a full refund or merchandise credit. The Vitamin Shoppe is notifying all known purchasers directly.

==> If you have a medical emergency, please contact 9-1-1, your closest hospital or emergency center equipped to handle Iron overdose.
