Dozens of children’s medications recalled due to possible ‘microbial contamination’

ASHEVILLE, N.C. — A company that makes homeopathic children’s medicines has recalled 32 products after a small percentage of products tested positive for microbial contamination, according to the FDA.

Some of the products made by King Bio (Dr. King’s) between Aug 2017 and April 2018 tested positive for the contamination. “Out of an abundance of caution,” the company has voluntary recalled multiple products.

“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. King Bio has not received reports of injury or illness to date.”

The list includes 13 products under the brand name SafeCare RX, which is only used by medical professionals.

King Bio says anyone who has the recalled product should discontinue use and distribution and contact King Bio at recall@kingbio.net to return the product. Customers with questions can call 866-298-2740.
