Thank you for your continued patience as we work to return our formula products to the market as soon as possible. Upon reopening our Sturgis, Mich. manufacturing facility in early July, we
prioritized the production our specialty products including metabolic products. The first metabolic products released, ProViMin® and Calcilo XD®, are shipping now in the U.S.
Please see below for the estimated U.S. metabolic product release of product manufactured after the facility restart through January 2023. After product is released, it can take up to four weeks for products to be available through standard channels such as home medical suppliers, distributors, and state programs.
Please note that while the release timing listed is our best estimate, the dates may shift. Restarting a large manufacturing facility after a several-month shutdown is a complex process, and it takes time to ensure that equipment, processes, and production are functioning smoothly and sustainably. It’s taken us time to ramp up production consistently. There have been- and likely will be- stops and starts from time to time. We’ve experienced events like severe weather, we’ve had to make mechanical adjustments, and we’ve had to discard some early production batches that didn’t meet our standards.
