The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has announced that New Chapter Inc. is voluntarily recalling a limited number of packages of its 90-count Probiotic Elderberry dietary supplement because it may contain an undisclosed allergen -- soy.
"People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to soy run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product," the FDA said Thursday. " There have been no illnesses reported to date in connection with this product. This product is a food safety concern only for people who are allergic to soy."
The product is packaged in a 90-count amber glass jar with an outer cardboard carton that reads:
Expiration date: 01/31/15 (located on the bottom of the box and on the side of the bottle)
This voluntary recall is limited only to packages of New Chapter Probiotic Elderberry bearing the above UPC, expiration date and lot number. No other New Chapter products are affected.
