Vita Health Products issues Voluntary Recall of Pharmasave Extra Strength Ibuprofen Liquid Capsules, 12 count

WINNIPEG, Oct. 2, 2013 /CNW/ - Today Vita Health Products Inc. announced the voluntary recall of three lots of Pharmasave Extra Strength Ibuprofen Liquid Capsules, 12 count.

The product is being recalled due to a labeling design error.  The finished good is a labeled bottle in a box.  The inner label correctly states in French and English that the product is not child resistant.  The outer box correctly states the product is not child resistant in English but incorrectly states "Bouchon à l'épreuve des enfants" in French which translates to "Child Resistant Cap".

The outer box and inner label state 'CAUTION: KEEP OUT OF THE REACH OF CHILDREN.  There is enough drug in this package to seriously harm a child' in French and English in prominent red text.

Once Vita Health became aware of the issue, the company immediately notified Health Canada and began the recall process.  To date there have been no adverse events reported concerning the product.

The following products are included in this recall:
