Update: WishGarden Herbs Recalls Cord Care, Goldenseal Powder for Bacterial Contamination
WishGarden Herbs, Inc., is recalling to the consumer level 14 lots of Cord Care and Goldenseal Powder products produced after 7/26/18 with expiration dates between 7/26/18 and 9/1/20. These products were distributed nationwide in the USA through select practitioners.
“After receiving notice of a supply chain issue, WishGarden has determined these products were manufactured using ingredients potentially contaminated with Cronobacter sakazakii bacteria,” FDA said. “Use of these products, when contaminated with this bacteria, may cause serious infections with severe outcomes, including death, especially in vulnerable patients with compromised immune systems and infants.”
This recall began on December 4, 2020.
What’s the Problem?
Maison Terre issued this recall after an FDA laboratory analysis found the goldenseal root powder to be contaminated with microorganisms including Enterobacter cloacae, Cronobacter sakazakii, Cronobacter dublinensis and others.
“The use of contaminated product in otherwise healthy patients can result in infections necessitating antimicrobial and potentially surgical treatment,” FDA said. “In individuals with weak immune systems and infants, the use of the product can result in death.”
The recalled goldenseal root powder was purchased by Maison Terre from Sacramento, California-based Starwest Botanicals, FDA said. Affected products were distributed nationwide via online sales from 01/25/2015 to 08/04/2020.
If you purchased any goldenseal root powder that is affected by this recall, you should not consume it or apply it, and either throw it away or contact Maison Terre for a refund.
This recall began on August 18, 2020.
