On August 25, 2020 the makers of NatureThroid® issued the following:
“RLC Labs, Inc. is dedicated to the health and safety of our hypothyroid community. As our number one priority, we want to ensure that you are aware of our decision to issue a recall of all unexpired lots of Nature-Throid® (Thyroid USP Tablets) and WP Thyroid® (Thyroid USP Tablets) that are currently in commercial distribution. This recall has been initiated because testing found that certain lots of these products may be sub-potent (i.e. contain less than 90% of the labeled amount of liothyronine or levothryroxine).
We have voluntarily decided to recall all unexpired lots in the marketplace to ensure that patients only receive product that meets our high quality standards.
As of this release, we have not been notified of any adverse reactions from patients related to this recall of Nature-Throid® and/or WP Thyroid®. We are currently working in tandem with the FDA to ensure the quality and safety of our products.
You are encouraged to contact your prescribing health care provider to discuss next steps. If you are currently taking Nature-Throid® or WP Thyroid®, you should not discontinue use without contacting your doctor for further guidance and/or a replacement prescription.
At Pure Life Pharmacy, your health is our priority. Please contact us at your earliest convenience. We will work with your doctor to obtain a valid prescription for a comparable porcine thyroid medication or a compounded replacement for an extended release capsule of T3 (Liothyronine) and T4 (Levothyroxine) at the same ratio as the labeled amount of your Nature Thyroid.
