Pure Encapsulations Recalls Supplements Due to Egg Allergen
In a news release Wednesday, Pure Encapsulations Inc. announced a voluntary recall of certain nutritional supplements due to undeclared egg allergen.
Subject to recall is lot number 3560111 of the company’s PreNatal Nutrients. People with an allergy or severe sensitivity to the egg who consume the affected product are at risk of a serious, potentially life-threatening, allergic reaction.
The recalled supplement comes as two-piece hard capsules packaged in white HDPE plastic bottles in 120-count (product code PRE12) and 60-count (product code PRE6) quantities with lot number 3560111A or 3560111B and best by date 01/13.
Pure Encapsulations is aware of one confirmed report of an allergic reaction in connection with the recalled supplement, which was distributed nationwide through healthcare practitioners.
Anyone who has purchased the recalled supplement is encouraged to return the product to the place of purchase for a complete refund.
Being a Los Angeles personal injury attorney, I hope no one else has experienced an adverse reaction from consuming the recalled supplements. Because of my experience as a product defect lawyer, consumer health is something that I am very conscious of; I encourage anyone who has purchased the recalled supplements to return them to the place of purchase and urge people with food allergies to always carefully read ingredient labels.
