Rexall softgels recall


Rexall Inc., of Deerfield Beach, FL, has recalled its Rexall Calcium 1200 mg plus 1000IU Vitamin D3, 60 softgels. The affected bottles actually contain a TABLET product, Triple Strength Glucosamine Chondroitin and MSM Tablets.


Glucosamine is derived from the shells of certain crustaceans. Because the product may contain trace quantities of undeclared shellfish, people who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to shellfish (such as shrimp, crab, lobster, clams or oysters) run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.


Rexall Calcium 1200 mg plus 1000IU Vitamin D3 was distributed solely at Dollar General, which has 9,800 stores across 38 states. This recall involves only one lot number, 387651-04.


Product # / Description / UPC Code / Label Expiration Date / Lot Number
