Church & Dwight Co., Inc voluntarily recalled several Vitafusion gummy vitamins for "the possible presence of a metallic mesh material," according to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The recall was made after Church & Dwight Co. investigated two consumer reports about the metal mesh.

Although no injuries or illnesses have been reported, ingesting metal mesh is dangerous, as it could harm the digestive tract in severe cases.  

The recalled gummy vitamins were manufactured between October 29 and November 3, 2020. They were distributed in stores and online between November 13, 2020 and April 9, 2021, according to the FDA.
