Supplement manufacturer Rae Wellness has announced a product recall for products that were shipped without child protective caps.

The recall was announced today by the US Consumer Product Safety Commission. The recall pertained to bottles of Rae Prenatal Capsules and Rae Immunity Capsules which were sold in Target stores and on that company’s website as was as on Amazon, Thrive Market and other outlets.

The supplements contain iron, and so present a poisoning hazard if they should be accidentally ingested by a small child.  This is a provision of the Poison Prevention Packaging Act (PPPA). No adverse events have been reported in connection with the products’ packaging.

The products were sold from 2019 through February of this year. The recall plan calls for Rae, which is based in Minneapolis, to supply full refunds to consumers (about $15/bottle) and advise them on how to properly dispose of the products.

About 191,000 of the affected products were sold, according to the recall notice.

Rae Wellness recently conducted consumer research on wellness trends.  For more on that survey, click here​.
