Is Citracal halal?

Citracal vitamins are some of the most popular, especially here in the US. The big question is, are they halal?

Thus, Citracal vitamins are NOT halal. Although polyvinyl alcohol is halal since it is just a synthetic polymer, the fact that the vitamins contain animal-derived ingredients (as confirmed in the above email) makes them NOT suitable for Muslims.

And Allah knows best.
