iFlora Kids Multi-Probiotic and iFlora 4-Kids Powder has been recalled due to possible Salmonella contamination. The Sedona Labs announcement was made after its supplier of Galactooligosaccharide (GOS) recalled this ingredient which is an element of the recalled iFlora probiotic.
Salmonella is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy people infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.
The recalled iFlora probiotic was distributed between 3/16/2011 and 5/3/2012. Consumers possessing these products should immediately discontinue their use. To date, no illnesses have been reported in connection with the iFlora Kids Multi-Probiotic or iFlora 4-Kids Powder.
