I brought these vitamin B12 capsules from Costco

The supplements panel says its okay to take one tablet daily

enter image description here

but I am worried since 1 tablet has a whooping 83333% or as much as 833 times the daily value. To put it in perspective, one of these tablets should be good for 2 years! Is it really okay to take one of these tablets daily? What is the recommended dosage? I am vegetarian and consume dairy products sparingly

    Welcome to the wonderful world of vitamin scams. I don't know the answer offhand but I wouldn't take 83333% of much of anything. – Carey Gregory Apr 6 '17 at 3:57
  • Maybe remove the comma separator in 83,333? In Europe, this is equivalent to 83.333 (83 percent and a third). There might be some misconception... – Narusan Apr 6 '17 at 12:09
