The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has cited a voluntary Protandim recall by manufacturer LifeVantage Corporation. Protandim is an Nrf2 Synergizer dietary supplement.
LifeVantage issued the voluntary Protandim recall because of the possibility that tiny metal fragments could be present in some of the final product. Such metal fragments initially were found in batches of an ingredient purchased from a third-party supplier for use in Protandim. That ingredient is turmeric extract.
Consumers who have bottles of Protandim from lot numbers cited in the recall are urged to stop using the product and alert LifeVantage by calling 866-912-9051 at any time, 24 hours per day.
The 10 potentially affected lots of Protandim were distributed from July-November of 2012. Lot numbers can be found at the bottom of this article.
Patients and healthcare professionals are asked to alert the FDA about adverse side effects or adverse events stemming from usage of Protandim products.
Protandim is sold in cylindrical blue bottles holding 30 caplets each for oral consumption.
Recalled Protandim lots are: Lot 12-0258; Lot 12-0259; Lot 12-0292; Lot 12-0294; Lot 12-0295; Lot 12-0304; Lot 12-0306; Lot 12-0307; Lot 12-0373; and Lot 12-0382. The lots have expiration dates ranging from July 2, 2015 to Sept. 21, 2015.
Lot numbers can be found on the left side of the label of the product, just above the scan bar.
