RECALL ALERT: Baby cough syrup may contain bacteria

Kingston Pharma, LLC  is voluntarily recalling one lot of 2-fluid ounce (59 mL) bottles of DG/health Naturals baby Cough Syrup + Mucus because it may be contaminated with bacteria that could lead to vomiting or diarrhea and, in rare cases, could be fatal.

“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,” the recall announcement said.

Those at risk for more severe forms of the illness include infants, young children and those with weakened immune systems.

The products were sold at Dollar General stores across the country and the company said there have been no reports of illness related to the recall.
