King Bio Recalls Products Due to Microbial Contamination

August 22, 2018

King Bio is recalling several of its kids and infant products due to possible microbial contamination.

On Aug. 22, 2018, King Bio announced it was voluntarily recalling several of its children's and infant products because of the potential of microbial contamination. The company states that a “small percentage” of its products that were manufactured between August 1, 2017 and April 2018 tested positive for microbial contamination. In July 2018, the company announced it was recalling four lots of Aquaflora Candida HP9, Lymph Detox, and Baby Teething liquids because Pseudomonas Brenneri, Pseudomonas Fluroescens, and Burkholderia Multivorans were found during a routine FDA inspection.

The affected products in the new recall include, but are not limited to, Chicken Pox Symptom Relief, Children’s Appetite & Weight, Children’s Cough Relief, Children’s Fever Reliever, and Kids Candida. A full list can be found on FDA’s website.

While the company has not yet received any reports of adverse events, it stresses that use of contaminated products may cause infections that could potentially be life threatening. Adverse events can be reported to FDA through its MedWatch program.
