Vita Health Products Issues Voluntary Recall of Safeway Extra Strength Ibuprofen Liquid Capsules 400 mg 50 count

WINNIPEG, June 7, 2013 /CNW/ - Today Vita Health Products Inc. announced the voluntary recall of all lots of Safeway Extra Strength Ibuprofen Liquid Capsules 400 mg 50 count as a result of a labeling design error.

The product is packaged with a non child resistant bottle and cap configuration.  The outer carton correctly states "Child resistant cap available in another size" and the inner label incorrectly states "Child Resistant Cap."

The outer box and inner label both 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 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 this product.
