Cod-liver oil health fears
Saturday 24 January 1998
A healthfood chain yesterday took bottles of own-brand cod-liver oil off its shelves amid fears that the vitamin supplement contains industrial toxins. Holland & Barrett said it will re-label all its own-brand cod- liver oil, deleting dosage instructions for children under five. The move follows warnings that minute traces of industrial toxins have been found in the product. Government scientists said the levels were "undesirably high" for under-fives, but insisted there was no health risk.
Manufacturers have volunteered to delete instructions for feeding the old-fashioned children's diet supplement to under-fives. Holland & Barrett said it was speeding up the process on its own brand bottles by taking them off the shelves and either putting the bottles in new packaging or sticking new labels on the packets.
