DG™/health NATURALS baby Cough Syrup + Mucus is being recalled due to potential contamination, announced the FDA. Kingston Pharma has recalled Lot KL180157 of its 2-fluid ounce (59ML) bottles due to potential contamination of Bacillus cereus/Bacillus circulans, they said.
According to the press release regarding the recall, the bottles of DG™/health NATURALS baby Cough Syrup + Mucus” were distributed nationwide in Dollar General retail stores. The product comes in a carton labeled DG™/health baby Cough Syrup + Mucus in 2-fluid ounce bottles marked with Lot KL180157 Expiration date 11/20 on the bottom of the carton and back of the bottle label; UPC Code 8 54954 00250 0.
To date, no illnesses have been reported. The FDA states that Bacillus cereus in food products has the potential to produce two forms of gastrointestinal illness, one being a syndrome primarily of vomiting, and the other of diarrhea. Most often, illnesses are mild and self-limiting, although more serious and even lethal cases have occurred. Individuals at risk for more severe forms of illness include infants, young children, and others with weakened immune systems, they said.
The potential for contamination was found after an audit testing revealed the presence of Bacillus cereus/Bacillus circulans in some bottles. According to the report, one in ten bottles showed low levels of Bacillus cereus and two in ten bottles showed low levels of Bacillus circulans.
Production of the product has been suspended while the FDA investigates.
