VitaFusion Melatonin Recall

April 21, 2021


Church & Dwight Co., Inc. is initiating a recall of select vitamin products that were manufactured within a very limited timeframe due to an isolated issue at one of our manufacturing facilities. The recall consists of select Vitafusion products after the company identified the possible presence of a metallic mesh material in product lots manufactured in a four-day period between October 29 and November 3, 2020. The Company is not aware of any reports of consumer illness or injury. We are taking every necessary action to recover any products that could have been impacted. 

The affected products were produced in only one of our manufacturing locations; as a result, the lot code will begin with the letters WA. \

Upon returning any below listed product to your local Big Y, you will receive a full refund.

The following products are sold at Big Y:

Product Name UPC Size Lot Code/Expiration Date
VitaFusion Kids Melatonin 2791700170 50ct WA03076268, 11/2022
