Nutra-Life Withdraws Pan Pharmaceutical Products

Nutra-Life Health & Fitness (Nz) Ltd Withdraws Pan Pharmaceutical Manufactured Products

Nutra-Life Health & Fitness (NZ) Ltd today announced it will be removing from its stockists’ shelves in New Zealand products manufactured by the Australian company, Pan Pharmaceuticals.

Although no Nutra-Life products are on the 219 product recall list in Australia, Nutra-Life has decided that to ensure consumer confidence they will recall effected Pan-manufactured products effective immediately.

Pan Pharmaceuticals supplies a number of tablets and capsules to Nutra-Life for packing under its own brands and while there is no evidence that these products are unsafe, Nutra-Life views the confusion for both retailers and consumers as serious enough to warrant withdrawal of products manufactured by Pan Pharmaceuticals after 1st May 2002. As market leader, Nutra-Life believes it is its responsibility to ensure the protection of the industry’s integrity.

Nutra-Life currently manufactures a large proportion of its products on site and at other licenced manufacturers. These are immediately available for reorder. These products are of the highest quality and will continue to be sold with confidence.

Nutra-Life CEO, Mark Mathews believes that the quality breaches made by Pan are serious enough to warrant a withdrawal of their products.

“While there are no Nutra-Life products on the Australian recall list, we have made the decision to remove effected Nutra-Life products manufactured by Pan Pharmaceuticals from our stockists’ shelves,” said Mathews.

“There is no evidence that these products are unsafe but it is only by removing them that we can return the confidence to our consumers and uphold the integrity of our brands and industry. This is obviously going to affect our sales but we are not prepared to compromise the standard of bringing our products to the market.” …/2

Nutra-Life is moving quickly to transfer products previously supplied by Pan Pharmaceuticals to in-house manufacture or other appropriate licenced manufacturers.

Nutra-Life Health & Fitness is a 100% privately owned New Zealand natural health company, and a major supplier to the nutritional products market, both in New Zealand, Australia and more than 20 other countries. Nutra-Life is proactive in promoting the message of positive health and performance through better nutrition - providing ongoing information, innovation and support to it’s customers and distribution partners.
