A product meant for nursing mothers has been recalled because of possible bacterial contamination.
WishGarden Herbs has recalled 46 units of Happy Ducts Compress after a retained product was found to be contaminated with Cronobacter sakazakii bacteria. The company, in a release posted on the U.S. Food and Drugs (FDA) website, said the herbal remedy was meant to be used as an external compress for the breast tissue of nursing women.
If the contaminated product is used, the babies may be exposed to the bacteria through the residue on the mothers’ skin. The mothers may also be at risk if the product is applied on broken skin.
