Childrens Dietary Supplements Recalled Due to Salmonella Contamination

Fri, 13 Jul 2012 13:31:27 EST

Salmonella bacteria have been discovered in a specific ingredient used to make dietary supplements for children, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently reported.
 
Sedona Labs used a "highly pure food grade powder derived from milk lactose" known as Galactooligosaccharides (GOS) to make its iFlora® Kids Multi-Probiotic®. The company bought GOS from a South Korean supplier that has since recalled the powder due to Salmonella contamination.
 
Most people infected with Salmonella develop diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps 12 to 72 hours after infection. The illness usually lasts 4 to 7 days, and most people recover without treatment.
 
However, in some people, the symptoms may be so severe that hospitalization is required. In these cases, the Salmonella infection may spread from the intestines to other sites in the body. This condition may result in death unless the patient is treated quickly with antibiotics. The young people, the elderly, and immunocompromised individuals are more likely to have a severe illness.
 
'EMSL Analytical helps pharmaceutical and nutraceutical companies deal with microbial contamination, such as Salmonella, in their products and offer a wide variety of cutting-edge testing services in our cGMP and ISO 17025 compliant laboratory,' states Diane Miskowski, MPH, Business Development Manager at EMSL Analytical, Inc.
