This recall involves L'il Critters Gummy Vites, vitafusion Fibre Well, and vitafusion MultiVites.
Church & Dwight Canada Corp. is recalling certain lots of L'il Critters Gummy Vites children's vitamins, as well as vitafusion Fibre Well and vitafusion MultiVites vitamins for adults, because they may contain metal wire fragments. The affected lots were manufactured within a specific four-day period between October 29 and November 3, 2020. The products were distributed nationally.
Ingesting the metal fragment could damage the digestive system. Based on information from the company, the metal fragments are thought to be small pieces of a stainless steel filter screen that failed during manufacturing. The fragments are thin, visible, flexible wires measuring approximately 25 millimetres long. The company became aware after receiving consumer complaints, none of which involved a report of consumer injury as a result of the issue.
