Some Dietary Supplements Recalled for Burkholderia Contamination

Core Tip: The FDA is updating a recall issued earlier this month for some dietary supplements that were recalled for Burkholderia cepacia contamination.
The FDA is updating a recall issued earlier this month for some dietary supplements that were recalled for Burkholderia cepacia contamination. This bacteria can cause serious health problems in people with cystic fibrosis and other lung diseases. Symptoms of the infection include cough, congestion, and difficulty breathing.

The original recall notice stated that there have been several adverse event reports of this infection in patients that may be linked to PharmaTech LLC manufactured Diocto Syrup or Diocto Liquid. Rugby Laboratories issued a recall of those products in early August, and the three distribution firms are recalling all lots within expiry of all liquid products manufactured by PharmaTech LLC. You can see all of the recalled products, along with package sizes, product photos, and identifying numbers at the FDA site.

Some of the recalled products include Poly-Vita Drops W/Iron, Ferrous Drops Iron Supplements, Liquid Vitamin C supplement, and liquid multivitamin supplements for infants and toddlers, and for breastfed infants. If you purchased any of these products, look through the recall list carefully and stop using them. Throw them away in a sealed package, or take them back to the place of purchase for a full refund.

If you or a loved one has had an adverse reaction after using these products, see your doctor. You can report adverse events using the FDA’s Adverse Event Reporting Program.
