Recall Alert For New England: Infant Cough Syrup May Be Contaminated With Bacteria
Check your medicine cabinets for this cough syrup for infants. DG Naturals Baby Cough Syrup + Mucus is a brand sold exclusively at Dollar General stores and made by Kingston Pharma. It is being recalled in New England and nationwide, because it may be contaminated with bacteria that could make infants sick, according to our news partner WMTW. Symptoms of Bacillus cereus include vomiting and/or diarrhea and possibly even death.
An FDA press release, made available by WMTW, states:
Most often, illnesses are mild and self-limiting, although more serious and even lethal cases have occurred.
So far, no illnesses have been reported. However, if you have this brand in your possession, specifically the 2-fluid ounce (59 mL) bottles (Lot KL180157, expiration date 11/20), it is best to take the back to Dollar General. You should get a full refund.
