FDA recalls injectable Vitamin Products distributed by Medical Supply Liquidators

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)has warned health care professionals not to use injectable vitamin products distributed by Medical Supply Liquidators LLC in Clive, Iowa, with “Sunshine Labs” on the label. These vitamin products were manufactured by Compound Brothers Dominicana (CB Inc.) in the Dominican Republic and sold as prescription nutritional supplements injectable. These products are not approved by FDA and thus cannot be assured about their safety, efficacy or quality.

Products affected by the recall include Vitamin B12, Vitamin B6, BCAA, MIC, Super MIC B Complex, Lipo 8, G.A.C., L-Carnitine, B-Complex, and Gluthathione. Patients receiving contaminated injections could suffer from life-threatening infections. Even if the injection is not contaminated, too much Vitamin B12 can have serious side effects like the formation of blood clots, heart failure, kidney and liver problems.

Medical Supply Liquidators voluntarily recalled all lots of non-expired products from Compound Brothers Inc. and labeled as Sunshine Labs. Although there is no adverse event reports associated with these products, they are not allowed on the market because they are not approved by the FDA and not evaluated for safety.
