Pharmavite LLC is recalling specific lots of Nature Made products for possible Salmonella or Staphylococcus aureus contamination. Both Salmonella and Staph aureus can lead to food poisoning. The recall was initiated after the company found that testing for these pathogens was not completed properly on these batch lots.
The recalled products include certain lot numbers of Nature Made Adult Gummies Multi in 90 and 150 count bottles; Nature Made Adult Gummies Multi + Omega-3 in 150 count bottles. Also recalled are lot numbers of Nature Made Adult Gummies Multi for Her plus Omega-3s in 100 and 150 count bottles, and Nature Made Super B Complex w/C & Folic Acid Tablets in 140, 460, and 360 count bottles. You can see the identifying information of the recalled products, including lot numbers and UPC numbers of these products at the FDA web site.
Salmonella infection symptoms include fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain. Staph aureus toxin in food produces symptoms quickly, depending on the amount of toxin in the food and the health of the patient. The most common symptoms of this illness are nausea, vomiting, retching, abdominal cramps, and weakness. Some people may experience headache, muscle cramps, and changes in blood pressure and pulse rate.
These products were distributed nationwide to major retailers. If you purchased these products, do not consume them. Throw them away or return them to the store where you bought them for a full refund.
