Ton Shen/ Life Rising Recalls all DHZC-2 Tablets After Reports of Illnesses, Deaths


Ton Shen Health/Life Rising Corporation of Chicago expanded a recall of “DHZC-2” Tablets to include all lots purchased before August 24, 2016 after state and federal health authorities said they were investigating six reports of adverse effects associated with the herbal supplement including the illnesses of two children and the possibility of two deaths.

Health officials say the product, which was sold nationwide in retails stores and distributed through mail orders, may be contaminated with elevated levels of lead, a toxic substance. Exposure to anything but small amounts of lead can cause lead poisoning.

Symptoms of lead poisoning include abdominal cramps, vomiting, fatigue, irritability, muscle weakness, behavior or mood changes, delirium, seizures, and coma. In young children, lead poisoning can cause learning disabilities and developmental delays even when if symptoms during the time of exposure may not be evident. Children with lead poisoning may not look or act sick. Children who have taken these supplements should see a doctor right away and mention exposure to elevated lead through use of this supplement.

The FDA detected elevated lead levels in samples of  DHZC-2 taken from lot # 2163-844. Consumers who have used this supplement and have symptoms should see a doctor right away and mention exposure to elevated lead levels through the use of this product.
