Freehold, NJ– Live Better One Daily Tablets and Live Better Complex Vitamin B50 Tablets were voluntarily recalled by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and International Vitamin Corporation (IVC). The CPSC announced the voluntary recall on June 30, 2011 after discovering that the product packaging is not child-resistant.

The product recall was issued after discovering that the iron supplements are not packaged in child-resistant packaging, which is required by the Poison Prevention Packaging Act. If a young child ingests several iron supplement tablets at once, it can cause serious injury or death.

“The recalled supplements were sold in white plastic bottles. ‘Live Better Complete Multivitamin One Daily Maximum Formula’ is printed in blue and red on a white label on one product and ‘Live Better Complex Vitamin B50’ is printed in blue and green on a white label on the other product,” reported the CPSC.

Consumers have been advised to call International Vitamin Corporation to receive a free replacement child-resistant cap.

For more information concerning the product recall, consumers can contact IVC toll-free at (866) 927-5470 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or visit www.ivcinc.com.
