Still supplements withdrawn. And always for the too high levels of ethylene oxide. The Ministry of Health today reported the recall by the company of a batch of the food supplement Carboglik of Farmac-Zabban for “values beyond the permitted threshold of ethylene oxide in the ingredient Fabenol (Phaseolus vulgaris Bean Extract)”. The product in question is sold in boxes of 30 coated tablets (total weight 36 grams) with the batch number 210203 and the best before date (Tmc) 03/31/2024, according to the website ilfattoalimentare.it.
The food supplement mentioned was produced for Farmac-Zabban Spa by the company Aquaviva Srl in the plant in via Biagio di Santolino 11, in Acquaviva, in the Republic of San Marino.
Purely for purpose precautionary, it is recommended to do not consume the supplement with the reported lot number and return it to the store where it was purchased for a refund.
Just three days ago, on October 1st, another supplement was added to the list of those recalled by the Ministry of Health. In fact, a recall notice for two batches of the dietary supplement has been published extended of the Istituto Lusofarmaco d’Italia company, again due to the “presence of traces of ethylene oxide in a concentration higher than the permitted limits within a raw material and the finished product”.
