(KPTV) -

A number of popular Nature Made vitamins are being recalled due to the possibility that they are contaminated with Salmonella or Staphylococcus aureus bacteria.

Pharmavite, the company that manufactures Nature Made products, said it decided to recall the vitamins when it discovered that certain lots of Adult Gummies Multi and Super B Complex vitamins were not properly tested for Salmonella or Staph contamination.

The company said it was initiating the recall out of an abundance of caution. It wasn't clear if anybody had reported falling ill due to consuming the vitamins.

The recalled vitamins were shipped to retailers nationwide.

The following batches are included in the recall:

  • Nature Made Adult Gummies Multi vitamins, Lot numbers 1196071, 1196066 and 1205052;
  • Nature Made Adult Gummies Multi + Omega-3, Lot number 1173600;
  • Nature Made Adult Gummies Multi for Her plus Omega-3s, Lot numbers 1196048 and 1196050;
  • Nature Made Super B Complex w/C  Folic Acid Tablets, Lot numbers 1204735, 1173146, 1173779, 1204001 and 1170987

Anyone who has the vitamins can return them to the store where they were purchased for a full refund.
