Nature's Truth is recalling 520 bottles of iron supplements because the packaging is not child resistant.

The tablets inside the bottle contain iron, which can cause serious injury or death to young children if they consume multiple tablets at one time.

The affected bottles include Nature's Truth Slow Release 45mg Iron Supplements. The bottles are green with a green flip-top cap, and they contain 60 coated tablets. There is a yellow label on the bottle with the words Nature's Truth, SLOW RELEASE IRON, and 45 mg. Lot number 29672 and the expiration date EXP 01/2019 can be found on the right side of the bottle.

The bottles were sold at Quick Check stores in New Jersey and at independent pharmacies across the country from February 2017 until March 2017. They were sold for $6.

Although the company has not received any reports of injuries or incidents in connection with this recall, it is urging consumers to immediately put the bottles out of the reach of children and to take them back to the place of purchase for either a full refund or a replacement bottle.

For more information, consumers can reach Nature's Truth at (844) 544-1030.
