Product Quest Manufacturing is expanding its recall to all lots of nasal products and baby oral gels made at its Holy Hill, Florida facility due to a possible microbial contamination.
This covers products sold by several companies and as house brands for the following stores:
- Dollar General
- Family Dollar
There are no reports of illness and the company says the recall is being conducted out of an abundance of caution.
According to the FDA, “repetitive use of a nasal spray or other nasal product containing a gram-negative pathogen can potentially lead to colonization and subsequent infection which can be life-threatening in certain patient populations, such as those with cystic fibrosis or immune-compromised individuals.”
Similarly, “repetitive use of an oral gel product containing a pathogen can potentially lead to colonization and subsequent infection which can be life-threatening in certain patient populations, including babies or very young children.”
There have been no reported illnesses.
Anyone with these products should return them for a refund. Anyone with questions can call Product Quest at 704-939-4342, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Eastern time.
