Health Canada is advising Canadians that one bottle of children's "Flintstones Plus Iron" multivitamins (NPN 02247995) was returned to a pharmacy containing unidentified capsules instead of the proper chewable tablets, which are multi-coloured tablets shaped like Flintstones characters. The opened bottle with the safety seal removed was returned to a Pharmaprix in Longueuil, QC, in December 2017.
At this time, Health Canada and the company, Bayer Inc., are aware of only one incident involving this product.
Who is affected
What consumers should do
Health Canada was notified of the issue by the pharmacy.

The health risks of consuming the unidentified capsules are not known.
What Health Canada is doing
Health Canada is testing the unidentified capsules. Should Health Canada become aware of additional safety information, it will take appropriate action and inform Canadians as necessary.
