Baby Move Prune Concentrate Recalled For Salmonella
Wellements LLC is issuing a voluntary recall of Baby Move™ Prune Concentrate liquid dietary supplement, because the supplier of one of the ingredients used in the product has indicated that the ingredient has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.
No illnesses have been reported to date.
