Today Rexall, Inc., of Deerfield Beach, Florida, announced a recall of 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 (e.g., 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
45211 Rexall Calcium 1200 mg plus 1000IU Vitamin D3, 60 softgels 3 01220 45211 3 Rexall 08/15 387651-04

To date, no adverse events have been reported related to this product.

When customers complained about the finding tablets in the bottle, and the discrepancy was confirmed, Rexall immediately began the recall process and removed the product from store shelves. Rexall is conducting an internal review of the manufacturing process to determine how the product was mislabeled.

Consumers who have this product in their possession can return it to Dollar General for a full refund or contact Rexall at 1-888-534-6370.
