Children's Medicine Brand Recalls Medication Due to Microbial Contamination

King Bio, an FDA-registered pharmaceutical company responsible for making and selling water-based natural homeopathic medicine, is now issuing a voluntary recall of 32 children’s medications after a possible microbial contamination.

The contaminated products were produced between August 2017 and April 2018. The company stated that a “small percentage” of the items tested positive for microbial contamination and King Bio stated that it is recalling these products “out of the abundance of caution.”
