Nature's Way Has Recalled Nettle

Springville, UT (SafetyAlerts) -  The Food and Drug Administration said that Nature's Way Products, Inc. has recalled four lots of its 100 count Nature's Way brand Nettle capsules because the product contains excessive amounts of lead. People, especially children, who consume high levels of lead, can suffer serious damage to their central nervous systems, sometimes leading to permanent neurological damage.

The affected lots of the product were distributed nationwide primarily in health food retail establishments between October 2001 and May 2002. The lot numbers affected by this recall are 131237, 131238, 140738 and 215229. Other lot numbers of the Nature's Way brand Nettle product are not affected and are not involved in this recall. The capsules are packaged in white 150cc plastic bottles with green lids under the Nature's Way brand label and can be identified by the lot number printed on the bottom of each bottle.

The problem has been traced to a single batch of raw material that was used to manufacture the four affected lots.

Consumers who have purchased any of the affected lots of the product are urged to contact Nature's Way Products, Inc. at 1-800-283-3323 to return the product for a full refund
