Ton Shen Health/ Life Rising Recall Expanded – Ton Shen Health/Life Rising Corporation of Chicago, IL, announced on August 30, 2016, that the company is expanding its recall of DHZC-2 tablets to all lots purchased before August 24, 2016, because the products may be contaminated with elevated levels of lead.

Ton Shen/ Life Rising DHZC-2 Recalled For Lead Contamination.

According to a company press release, the recalled DHZC-2 tablets were sold nationwide in retail stores and distributed by mail order.

Product Identification – The recalled DHZC-2 tablets come in a 1.6 ounce bottle and are marked with the UPC code 616042102727. Consumers are cautioned to not purchase or consume the recalled Life Rising brand DHZC-2 tablets from Ton Shen/Life Rising.

The potential for lead contamination was noted after the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) detected high levels of lead in DHZC-2 tablet samples from lot # 2163-844.

FDA And Illinois Public Health Officials Investigate Injuries

The FDA, in collaboration with the Cook County Department of Health and the City of Chicago, is investigating 6 adverse event reports that may be associated with Life Rising Dietary supplements from Ton Shen Health/Life Rising. Three of these reports involve children who may have consumed the recalled products. Two of the children experienced elevated lead levels. The FDA is also investigating 2 fatalities of individuals who consumed the product.

Lead Poisoning

The accumulation of lead in the body can lead to “lead poisoning” a condition that can be potentially fatal. Children are particularly vulnerable to the effects of lead poisoning, and may suffer serious health problems including delays in physical and mental development.

According to the FDA:

“While lead can affect nearly every bodily system, its effects depend upon the amount and duration of lead exposure and age. Symptoms can include abdominal pain, vomiting, lethargy, irritability, weakness, behavior or mood changes, delirium, seizures, and coma. However, infants, young children and the developing fetus can be affected by chronic exposure to amounts of lead that may not result in obvious symptoms of lead poisoning. A child with lead poisoning may not look or act sick.

Lead poisoning in children can cause:
•learning disabilities
•developmental delays
•lower IQ scores”
