Unauthorised minerals in a food supplement

Active Nutrition International Oy is withdrawing from the market a food supplement imported by the company, WNT Super Mineral Tabs (package size 60 tablets), because it contains unauthorised minerals. This mineral product manufactured in the United States contains added nickel (nickel sulphate), vanadium (potassium metavanadate) and cobalt (cobalt amino acid chelate), which under Commission Regulation (EC) No 1170/2009 may not be added to food supplements or foods marketed in the EU.

In Finland, the product has been sold in an online store (www.mass.fi). The withdrawal pertains to all manufacturing batches of the product. Customers who have purchased the product have been contacted by the importer via email and asked to return the remaining products to the importer.
