Several store-brand pain or sinus relief tablets recalled because consumers may be unable to access important safety information

Several store-brand pain or sinus relief tablets recalled because consumers may be unable to access important safety information

Vita Health Products is voluntarily recalling several store-brand (Care, Exact, Life, and Pharmasave) over-the-counter drugs used for pain or sinus relief because of a labelling issue. Consumers may be unable to peel open the wrap-around label on the bottle to access the warning statements, or the label may not peel off completely, which may make it difficult to read some of the important safety information.
