Recall - risk of inconsistent dosing

5 August 2020

Consumers and health professionals are advised that FIT-BioCeuticals, in consultation with the TGA, is undertaking a recall of one batch of BioCeuticals Vitamin D3 Drops Forte Liquid 20 mL due to inconsistent mixing of the medicine.

A manufacturing issue led to some samples from the batch being insufficiently mixed and separating into its component liquids. The variation in Vitamin D3 content across the batch may affect consumers who rely on the correct dose for treating health conditions.

The affected batch number is 002918 and it was manufactured in November 2019. No other batches are affected by this issue.
