Less than a week after announcing a voluntary recall of its water-based children’s medications due to possible contamination issues, King Bio has extended the recall to all of its water-based products.
The North Carolina-based maker of homeopathic drugs to treat a wide variety of ailments issued the extended recall “out of an abundance of caution” because tests showed microbial contamination in a small number of King Bio products.
The combined recall involves more than 50 King Bio products, though the FDA has received no reports of illness related to the contamination.
King Bio chief Dr. Frank King issued this statement:
“On August 27, 2018, King Bio voluntarily recalled all of its aqueous-based products due to possible water-purity issues. This includes all brands (Dr. King’s: Natural Medicine, Aquaflora, Natural Pet Pharmaceuticals, SafeCareRx, Natural Veterinary, and Safecare) and includes liquids, oral sprays, nasal gels, creams and lotions.
“While there have been no reports of illness or injury due to any of our products, we chose to issue the recall out of an abundance of caution.
“King Bio is notifying its distributors and customers by letter and is arranging for return and/or replacement of all recalled products.
“Consumers, distributors and retailers that have recalled product should discontinue use and or distribution and contact King Bio at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a return.
“Consumers with questions regarding this recall can contact King Bio at 866-298-2740 or e-mail email@example.com, Monday – Thursday 8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m., EST.
“Consumers should contact their physician or healthcare provider if they have experienced any problems that may be related to taking or using these products.”
