September 20, 2007|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

State health officials are urging consumers to stop giving infants and other children a liquid herbal supplement intended to ease stomach discomfort.

The state Department of Public Health said the product -- apple-flavored Baby's Bliss Gripe Water -- may be contaminated with a parasite that causes intestinal infections. The supplement is distributed by Mom Enterprises Inc. of San Rafael, Calif., which is recalling the product.

No illnesses related to the contamination have been reported in California.
