Big thanks to the clever folks for this important alert.

6 International manufacturers and 2 Drug Store Chains.

CVS Pharmacy Inc.
General Nutrition Corp.
Now Health Group Inc.
Omega Protein
Rite Aid
Twin Lab

*Some brands as high as 852 parts.

The manufacturers have probably distributed to many countries.

I think it's about amounts of PCB in fish oil supplements. There was something about it on the news last night.

Yes it was on the news here last nite.

I don't know if the products were sold
to other countries other than USA but I suspect there will be many.
The products are coming from overseas manufacturing companies.
I hope they are not in Canada.

I will try to find out as much as possible today and report

Part of the problem with supplements is that they are not fda regulated the same way drugs are...

Here is a link with the abc video:

thanks for posting this.
I just took my supplements before I logged on, and one of them was a CVS fish oil :(
That will be the last one. Going to switch to flax seed oil. thanks again
