Alka-Seltzer Recall — Foster's Supermarket

Alka-Seltzer Recall


As of 04/08/17 any product received from Bayer PLC with regard to Alka-Seltzer has been given the all clear.

August 3rd, 2017


Foster’s Food Fair-IGA would like to announce that the company Bayer plc is voluntarily recalling batches of Alka-Seltzer due to an issue with the blister foil. A problem with the blistering process has resulted in the potential for small holes or cracks being present in the aluminum layer of the tablet blister material, which are not visible to the consumer. This could result in compromise of the moisture barrier provided by the aluminum layer. Bayer has assessed this defect as unlikely to pose a safety risk for consumers, therefore affected batches are not being recalled to patient level.


Foster’s IGA carries Alka-Seltzer and has been affected by this recall. The affected products have been pulled from the shelves.


The products affected are as follows:



No other Alka-Seltzer branded products are included within this recall.


Customers should check the UPC’s on Alka-Seltzer branded products in their homes to be sure none of the affected product has been purchased. We encourage all customers who have purchased this product from any of our Foster’s IGA locations to return the affected product for a full refund. Please discontinue use of any affected product.
