NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) – Buzzagogo, Inc., a homeopathic nasal swab company, recently announced a voluntary nationwide recall of Allergy Bee Gone for Kids Nasal Swab Remedy due to possible microbial contamination.
FDA testing found that some products contained elevated levels of yeast and mold and may contain the bacterium Bacillus cereus.
The recall is of particular importance to immunocompromised children, where use of the affected product could result in serious or life-threatening outcomes, including pneumonia, bacteremia/sepsis, invasive fungal rhinosinusitis, or disseminated fungal infection.
