Packaging that did not reveal the presence of milk in two infant and child dietary supplements has led to those companies recalling them over concerns over potential food allergy problems.
Each company’s recall, posted by the FDA on Friday, said an ingredient was accidentally mixed with lactose and sent to the supplement producers without noting that it contained milk.
Wellements is voluntarily recalling two lots of its 1-ounce/30-milliliter bottles of Iron Drops liquid dietary supplement, along with an Iron Drops sample liquid dietary supplement, the FDA said. The Iron Drops were sold between May 1, 2019, through Wednesday, through select retail stores, Amazon.com and Wellements.com. The Iron Drops samples were distributed on the same dates nationwide through promotional giveaways. The Iron Drops are for children ranging in age from 4 months to 3 years old.
Wellements reported at least one allergic reaction, according to the recall notice.
Consumers who bought the Wellements supplements can return them to the store where they were bought for a full refund. Consumers with questions can call 800-255-2690, from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m, EDT.
The recalled UpSpring product was packaged in a 60-milliliter dark brown glass bottle with lot # 06691 and with an expiration date of March 2021.
