defect vitamin product, what to do now? pls advise.

Postby smile2win » Sat, 09 Aug 2008 11:50 pm

Hi all,

I bought GNC vitamin for my wife, she is pregnant. However, in less than 2 weeks of using, we saw many mouldy spots inside one bottle. (I keep three bottles in coll and dry place, but one has mouldy problem, other bottles don't have).

Now, I am very worried about this. Any impact to the baby. As far as I know, baby inside the mother, the immune system is not yet developed.

Can anybody give me advice how to handle this case? I have not spoken to GNC but I am not happy with this as I bought an expensive product and now overwhelm of worries for my wife and my baby.

Why haven't you spoken to GNC? That should be your contact of first resort not a forum. They may just replace the bottle for you. You haven't tried so I would suggest you go there first.

first things first - i'm sure your wife and baby are fine. you'd be surprised at how well protected the baby bean is on "the inside" :)

have a word with your doctor or nurse - even over the phone just for the reassurance.

lastly - like SMS said - take the bottles back to GNC - i'm sure they will replace them.

Thank for your replies. I am less worried now and in the process of talking to doctors and GNC officers.
