What are the defects?
These products were supplied within Australia for therapeutic use, without being registered on the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG).
These products have not been assessed as required, so their safety and efficacy are unknown.
For example, Glow Maxx is noted on the label to contain 1000 micrograms (mcg) of Vitamin D per capsule (per day). Medicines in Australia require a prescription if they contain more than 25 micrograms of Vitamin D per recommended daily dose. 1000 micrograms per day is 40 times this amount and, after prolonged use, could result in toxic effects such as vomiting and diarrhoea.
What are the hazards?
Use of these products may be harmful to consumers, and may cause injury or illness.
What should consumers do?
Consumers should return affected products to the place of purchase for a refund or replacement or safely dispose of them. Consumers should contact their GP or healthcare professional if they have any concerns. For more information contact the supplier at email@example.com.
