Gummy vitamins recalled for metal mesh

Consumers are urged to stop using these recalled gummy vitamins immediately.

A popular brand of gummy vitamins has been recalled because of reports they may contain metal mesh.

The Food and Drug Administration said Church & Dwight Co., Inc. is recalling several varieties of its Vitafusion gummy vitamin products after receiving two reports from consumers. The company says it is not aware of any illness or injury due to the contamination.
