For Immediate Release
February 14, 2017
Licata Enterprises of Huntington Beach, California is recalling its The Supreme One / Theravits 100 multiple vitamin (all lots) due to the discovery of a confusing labeling issue which could cause cause individuals allergic to fish oils to ingest the product in error. The product contains Vitamin A (partially from fish liver oil) which is clearly stated in the Supplement Facts portion of the label; however, another part of some labels also incorrectly state “... contains no common allergens” leading some with fish allergies to believe the product is safe for them. Further, the separate Allergen statement contains fish is missing. And, on some labels the following ingredients were missing: Molybdenum, Pancreatin, Diastase, Papain, Ox Bile, Vanadium, Silicon, Boron, and Bromelain.
The above products were distributed primarily Southern California, Ohio and Pennsylavnia through health food stores, but also in Wyoming, Virginia, Utah, Idaho, Washington, Oregon and Texas.
The Supreme One and Theravits 100 product is sold under the brand names of Nature’s Concept, VP Discount, Clark’s Nutrition, Hsu & Co, Spatz, Weber Health Foods, Harvest Natural Foods, Nature’s Nutrition, Vita Sun, Good Health, Kraski’s, Lynden Nutrition, Seaside Health Foods, and Vita-Vista. The product is packaged in amber or white plastic bottles with the product Code Number of 680 or 078 and the lot numbers 680xxxx or 078xxxx. NO illnesses have been reported to date.
Licata Enterprises has already recalled from its customers all product on store shelves and ceased distribution until new labels are printed within the week. Product will be replaced for each store.
Anyone who has purchased The Supreme One or Theravits 100 under the brands listed above with lot code number 680 or 078 and lot numbers 680xxxx or 078xxxx should return the product immediately to the place of purchase for a full refund.
