ProHeart 6 Being Recalled

Proheart® 6 Recall

The FDA states: "Recalls are actions taken by a firm to remove a product from the market. Recalls may be conducted on a firm's own initiative, by FDA request, or by FDA order under statutory authority.

A Class I recall is a situation in which there is a reasonable probability that the use of or exposure to a violative product will cause serious adverse health consequences or death.

A Class II recall is a situation in which use of or exposure to a violative product may cause temporary or medically reversible adverse health consequences or where the probability of serious adverse health consequences is remote.

A Class III recall is a situation in which use of or exposure to a violative product is not likely to cause adverse health consequences."

The Enforcement Report of June 9, 2004 shows Proheart® 6 recall of April 27th has been classified as a Class II..
