According to a recall notice published by the FDA, MaryRuth’s has initiated a recall of two lots of the company’s “Liquid Probiotic for Infants” due to possible Pseudomonas aeruginosa contamination. MaryRuth’s recall notice states that the voluntary recall was started “out of an abundance of caution.”
Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a dangerous pathogen that, if consumed, may cause a potentially life-threatening infection in very young infants and immunocompromised individuals. Pseudomonas aeruginosa infections in infants are ordinarily confined to hospital settings, especially when the immunocompromised infant’s immature gut cannot prevent Pseudomonas aeruginosa from entering the bloodstream where the microorganism can spread throughout the body, leading to serious adverse health consequences.
This “Liquid Probiotic for Infants” recall only affects “two lots of the product, Lot #100420218 and Lot #100520218, UPC barcode number 856645008587.” To find the lot numbers, simply look at the product’s bottle’s side or the outer container’s bottom. No other lots of the Liquid Probiotic for Infants product or any other MaryRuth’s products were recalled at this time. The Liquid Probiotic for Infants product was distributed through Amazon and Target nationwide. The product was also sold on the manufacturer’s website.
The company is urging customers to throw the recalled product away and to contact MaryRuth’s Customer Care Center for a full refund.
MaryRuth’s quality assurance personnel found the potential issue when one of their manufacturing partners performed routine laboratory testing. MaryRuth’s safety protocol staff decided to recall the product as a precautionary measure. The company is aware of one product complaint related to this recall. In this case an older infant suffered from temporary diarrhea after consuming the recalled product.
MaryRuth’s CEO and Founder, MaryRuth Ghiyam stated that MaryRuth’s is committed to customer safety, health, and welfare above all else, and the company invested massively, and it continues to invest in quality and safety protocols to make certain they manufacture the best products. For additional information, purchasers may contact MaryRuth’s via contact details on their website maryruthorganics.com.
