FIT-BioCeuticals, in consultation with the TGA, is undertaking a recall of one batch of BioCeuticals Vitamin D3 Drops Forte Liquid 20 mL
The recall is due to inconsistent mixing of the medicine.
“A manufacturing issue led to some samples from the batch being insufficiently mixed and separating into its component liquids,” the two say.
“The variation in Vitamin D3 content across the batch may affect consumers who rely on the correct dose for treating health conditions.
“The affected batch number is 002918 and it was manufactured in November 2019. No other batches are affected by this issue.”
Patients have been advised to bring any bottles from the affected batch to the place of purchase for a refund.
The TGA and FIT-BioCeuticals are asking health professionals to be alert to the issue if they are treating a patient who uses this product.
“Advise them to check the label and return the product if it is from the affected batch.
“Health professionals who have supplied this product can call the FIT-BioCeuticals Product Recall Team on 1300 650 455 (extension 2) or email firstname.lastname@example.org for further information about the recall process.”
