32 Popular Children's Medicines Recalled Over Contamination Fears, FDA Reports

Baby Center / Smallflower

In the past few months, there have been many recalls in the U.S.

What's very concerning is that many of these products being recalled are quite popular, like thyroid medication, heart and blood pressure medication , and foods like Ritz and Goldfish crackers.

Thankfully, no one has reported any issues with these products, all thanks to the companies voluntarily issuing a warning about possible contamination at their warehouses.

This time, a maker of popular children's medicines has issued a voluntary recall, and every parent needs to know about it before a kid gets sick.

The FDA announced that King Bio has recalled 32 medicines in case of microbial contamination.

They believe a small percentage of their products produced between August 2017 and April 2018 have been contaminated.

"Administration or use of drug 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."

The company added that they have not received reports of injury or illness to date.

Here is the list of affected products:
