Undeclared Shellfish in Rexall Calcium Prompts Recall

Rexall Calcium RecallRexall, Inc., of Deerfield Beach, Florida, announced a recall of Rexall Calcium 1200 mg plus 1000IU Vitamin D3, 60 softgels because the affected bottles do not contain the softgels as indicated on the label, but instead contain a tablet product, Triple Strength Glucosamine Chondroitin and MSM Tablets.

The glucosamine in the tablets is derived from the shells of certain crustaceans. Because the tablets 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, including anaphylactic shock, if they consume the tablets.

Details of the recalled product:

  • Rexall Calcium 1200 mg plus 1000 IU Vitamin D3
  • 60 softgels
  • Distributed solely at Dollar General in 9800 stores across 38 states
  • Product number: 45211
  • UPC Code 3 01220 45211 3
  • Expiration date of 8/15
  • Lot number 387651-04

There have been no reports of illness or injuries from the mislabeled product. Rexall and the FDA have pulled all of the bottles with that product number from store shelves. If you have purchased these supplements, return them to Dollar General for a full refund. If you have questions, please call 1-888-534-6570.
