Shares of LifeVantage (LFVN), a maker of dietary supplements, fell sharply after the company announced a voluntary recall of one its products last night. LifeVantage reported it is contacting affected independent distributors and other customers to recall and replace certain lots of its Protandim dietary supplement. The company said it is taking this action due to the possible inclusion of small metal fragments in the final product. The fragments were originally discovered in batches of turmeric extract, an ingredient in Protandim that was purchased from a third party supplier, according to LifeVantage. In early afternoon trading, shares of LifeVantage tumbled 36c, or 14.40%, to $2.14.
