Church & Dwight Co Inc is voluntarily recalling select vitafusion gummies, including several melatonin products, after the company’s investigation of two consumer reports identified the possible presence of a metallic mesh material in certain product lots.
The company says in a recall notice on the US Food and Drug Administration’s website that it is not aware of any reports of consumer illness or injury. In some severe cases, ingesting a metallic material could lead to damage of the digestive tract.
The impacted product lots were manufactured in a four-day period between Oct 29, 2020, and Nov 3, 2020, and were distributed to in-store and e-commerce retailers from Nov 13, 2020, through April 9, 2021.
Consumers who have purchased one of the products listed below should stop consumption immediately and call the consumer affairs team at 1-800-981-4710 before disposing of the product, according to the company. A full refund will be provided.
