News on another dietary supplement recall from the FDA.
Botanical Laboratories Inc. and FDA notified consumers and healthcare professionals of a recall of Wellesse Digestive 3 in 1 Health liquid dietary supplement. A supplier of one of the ingredients indicated 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.
