A new study reveals what's in your vitamin bottle may not match the label!

Researchers tested vitamin D pills sold in five mainstream grocery stores from 12 different manufacturers.

They found the actual amounts of vitamin D in the pills ranged from nine to 140-percent of what was on the label.

Experts say while no pills were considered dangerous some had too little of the vitamin to treat someone with a deficiency.
