“Well at Walgreens” Multivitamin Women 50+ tablets are being recalled over packaging that is not child-resistant and senior-friendly, according to standards set by the Poison Prevention Packaging Act, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) reported on June 11.

According to the report, the multivitamin tablets contain iron, a nutrient that can be dangerous for children if ingested in large amounts. Each bottle contains 200 tablets, has UPC number 3-11917-17262-0 printed at the top yellow label, and a lot number of 000001 (EXP 9/2016), 000002 (EXP 12/2016) or 000003 (EXP 11/2016) on a white label at the back.

The products were sold at Walgreen’s drug stores nationwide from January 2015 to March 2015. Consumers are asked to contact the International Vitamin Corporation for a compliant lid at no cost.
