Walmart recalling joint supplements for hidden drug risk
Walmart Inc. is voluntarily recalling all lots of Artri Ajo King Joint Supplements sold by Innovacion Naturals and PDX Supply Warehouse LLC on Walmart.com and shipped by Walmart to the consumer level, according to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration.
An FDA laboratory analysis confirmed that Artri Ajo King Omega 3 Joint Support Supplement contains diclofenac not listed on the product label.
The supplements with packaging labeled LOTE LTARTKNGOMG30720, CADUCIDAD DICIEMBRE 2026, UPC 7 501031 111190 are on the recall list.
According to the FDA, diclofenac is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug commonly referred to as NSAIDs. NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) may cause an increased risk of cardiovascular events, such as heart attack and stroke, as well as gastrointestinal damage, including bleeding, ulceration, and fatal perforation of the stomach and intestines.
This hidden drug ingredient may also interact with other medications and significantly increase the risk of adverse events, particularly when consumers use multiple NSAID- containing products.
