Proofreading error resulted in some erroneous numbers for vitamin A and D content of Cod Liver Oil and Salmon Oil

by Craig Weatherby


Last issue we ran a Q&A about the differences between Cod Liver Oil (CLO) and Salmon Oil.


Unfortunately, our proofreading process failed utterly, and we printed some erroneous figures for the vitamin A and D content of both oils.


Alert reader Mike A caught the anomalies, and we thank him for that!


The corrected Q&A is located here.


Below, we show the corrections made to the vitamin A and D figures. As you can see, our typos resulted in overstating the vitamin A and vitamin D content of CLO, and understating the vitamin D and vitamin A content of our unrefined Sockeye Salmon Oil.

The erroneous figures are shown here with a line though them, and they're followed by the corrected numbers:


Nutrients per 1,000 mg capsule (average amounts):


Vitamin D

  • Vital Choice Sockeye Salmon Oil – 55 IU 114 IU
  • Cod Liver Oil – 400 to 1,000 IU 100 IU (USDA data: many Cod Liver Oil brands claim 400 to 1,000 IU)

Vitamin A*

  • Vital Choice Sockeye Salmon Oil – 687 IU
  • Cod Liver Oil – 10,000 IU 1,000 IU

Nutrients per teaspoon (average amounts):


Vitamin D

  • Sockeye Salmon Oil – 213 IU 456 IU
  • Cod Liver Oil – 1,150 IU 450 IU

Vitamin A*

  • Sockeye Salmon Oil – 2,514 IU 2,748 IU
  • Cod Liver Oil – 1,150 IU 4,500 IU

Sorry for the confusion!
