Women’s Multivitamins Recalled by Walgreens

We take extra care to protect those closest to us, especially our children. We childproof our homes, buy the best products to keep them safe in the car and make sure the places they play and go to school will be environments of fun and learning the best way we know how. When a company makes a mistake that can potentially interrupt the work you do to protect your child it can be very scary and potentially dangerous.

CBS St. Louis reports that Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc. based out of Deerfield, IL, is recalling about 17,000 bottles of multivitamins because the packaging is not child resistant. The “Well at Walgreens” Multivitamins Women’s 50+ tablets are not in compliance with the Poison Prevention Packaging Act standards. The vitamins contain iron which can very be very harmful if swallowed by young children.

When dealing with dangerous or defective products, it has to be proven to be unreasonably dangerous in order for a company to be liable for it. There are three ways a product can be rendered unreasonably dangerous:

  • Manufacturing defect: Error during manufacturing or producing
  • Design defect: Faulty design
  • Warning label defect: Failure to warn of danger with product use by seller or manufacturer
