Firm recalls supplement for babies

September 21, 2007|From the Associated Press

The Food and Drug Administration warned parents Thursday not to give babies a liquid herbal supplement marketed as a remedy for colic and teething pain because several bottles tested positive for a parasite that may have sickened a child in Minnesota.

The FDA confirmed the presence of cryptosporidium, a parasite that can cause diarrhea and intestinal infections, in unopened bottles of apple-flavored Baby's Bliss Gripe Water. The distributor, MOM Enterprises of San Rafael, Calif., said it had recalled about 17,600 bottles. Parents can call (877) 457-4955 for more information.

Meanwhile, Quong Hop & Co. of South San Francisco expanded its recall of tofu products, which might be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, a microorganism that can cause serious or fatal infections.

For more information, call (650) 553-9900.
