Lack of Child-Resistant Packaging Prompts Recall of Iron Supplement
June 10, 2013

Country Life has announced a recall of about 1,100 Target-Mins Iron Supplement Bottles.

The packaging is not child-resistant as required by the Poison Prevention Packaging Act. The supplement tablets inside the bottle contain iron, which can cause serious injury or death to young children if multiple tablets are ingested at once.

This recall involves Country Life Target-Mins 25 mg iron supplements bottles. The bottle is brown with a black top and has a white label with a yellow banner at the top and a green banner at the bottom. The words 'IRON,' 'Country Life' and '90 tablets' are printed on the label. Bar code 015794024927 and Lot Number 13A866B are printed on the far left side of the front label.

The bottles of Target-Mins Iron Supplement affected by this recall were sold at New Seasons, Sprouts Farmers Market, Vitamin Cottage, Whole Foods Market and other natural food stores nationwide from January 2013 to May 2013.

Consumers should immediately place recalled bottles out of the reach of children and return them to the place of purchase for a full refund or a replacement bottle.
