Children's vitamin recall

If your children take a multi-vitamin you might want to double check your medicine cabinet.

Health Canada has issued a warning that one bottle of children’s “Flintstones Plus Iron” multivitamins (NPN 02247995) was returned to a pharmacy containing unidentified capsules instead of the proper chewable tablets, which are multi-coloured tablets shaped like Flintstones characters.

The opened bottle with the safety seal removed was returned to a Pharmaprix in Longueuil, QC, in December 2017.

If you use this product you're advised to inspect the bottle to be sure it contains the proper chewable tablets before giving any to a child.

In general, check any health product before consuming it to make sure it appears as expected. If in doubt, check with a pharmacist.

  • Check product packaging before buying to make sure they have not been opened, torn, damaged or otherwise tampered with.
  • Consult with your health care professional if your child has consumed unidentified capsules and has health concerns.
  • Contact Bayer Inc. with any concerns about this product by calling toll-free at 1-800-714-4449.

At this time, Health Canada and the company, Bayer Inc., are aware of only one incident involving this product.
