A microbial contamination is the reasoning behind Product Quest Manufacturing’s latest voluntary recall of CVS Health 12 Hour Sinus Relief Nasal Mist. Out of caution, Product Quest has included all lots of nasal products and baby oral gels in the recall.
The microbial contamination is identified as Pseudomonas aeruginosa and it was said by Product Quest that there is no know contamination associated with the nasal products and baby oral gels that are subject to the recall expansion.
“Risk Statement: Repetitive use of a nasal spray or other nasal product containing a gram-negative pathogen can potentially lead to colonization and subsequent infection which can be life-threatening in certain patient populations, such as those with cystic fibrosis or immune-compromised individuals. Similarly, repetitive use of oral gel product containing a pathogen can potentially lead to colonization and subsequent infection which can be life-threatening in certain patient populations, including babies or very young children. To the best of Product Quest’s knowledge, the company has not received any reports of adverse events related to this recall to date,” says the release by Product Quest.
