This voluntary recall has been initiated due to microbial contamination. The products were tested and found to be contaminated with Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Candida parapsilosis and Acremonium fungi.

 

There have been no adverse reactions reported due to use of these products.

 

The above recalled lots passed all pre-production challenge testing and initial microbiological testing prior to sale, but during a routine quality check, microbial contamination was identified in select lots, which is why we are initiating the voluntary recall of the above products/lots.
