The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a serious recall that may impact thousands of people, if not more. The recalled products are commonly used medications that have been discovered to have microbial contamination.

At this time, we are asking our readers to check their medicine cabinets for these products. If consumers have these contaminated products, the FDA is urging people to stop using them, to discard the product in the trash, or return it to the place of purchase.

On Tuesday, August 28, the FDA has recalled nasal products and baby oral gels manufactured by Product Quest Manufacturing LLC due to the chances of a possible microbial contamination, according to reports.

Recalled Products

Product Quest Manufacturing has voluntarily recalled Lot # 173089J of CVS Health 12 Hour Sinus Relief Nasal Mist. The microorganism that contaminated the products was identified as Pseudomonas aeruginosa.

Pseudomonas aeruginosa is an infection caused by strains of bacteria that may cause blood infections, pneumonia, other severe illness and in some cases, death, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Out of caution, Product Quest reportedly expanded the recall to all nasal and baby oral gels. There is no known microbial contamination linked to the recalled products included in the expanded recall; however, the FDA says that the recall should be carried out the retail level.
