32 children’s medicines recalled for possible “microbial contamination”
King Bio is voluntarily recalling 32 children’s medicines because of potential “microbial contamination,” the company said in a statement on Wednesday.
The medicines, which include those meant to relieve common illnesses including fever, cough, flu, tummy aches, nosebleeds, and earaches, were sold nationwide.
According to the company, “the use of drugs products with microbial contamination could potentially result in increased infections that may require medical intervention, and could result in infections that could be life threatening to certain individuals.”
No injuries or illnesses have been reported to date.
Consumers who have the recalled products are urged not to use them and can contact King Bio at 1-866-298-2740 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements for a return.
