Raising children can be one of the most difficult things we ever do in our lifetime. It can also be one of the most rewarding achievements as well. However, raising kids comes with responsibility.
Now, parents are having to check their own medicine cabinets after a popular medicine company announced they are recalling some baby cough syrups. The company says the medicine may be contaminated with bacteria.
"Kingston Pharma, LLC of Massena, NY is recalling Lot KL180157 of its 2-fluid ounce (59 mL) bottles of DG™/health NATURALS baby Cough Syrup + Mucus” because it has the potential to be contaminated with Bacillus cereus/ Bacillus circulans," reported the FDA.
At this time, no reported cases or illnesses have come out in connection with the recall. The bottles were distributed nationwide and we're sold in 2-ounce portions.
"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," reported the FDA.
The specific product in question is DG™/health NATURALS baby Cough Syrup + Mucus. The bottles were labeled DG™/health baby Cough Syrup + Mucus and 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.
