WASHINGTON, DC (WHNT) — A homeopathic allergy medicine for children is being voluntarily recalled due to concerns with “high levels of yeast and mold,” the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said.
One lot of Allergy Bee Gone for Kids Nasal Swab Remedy, manufactured by Buzzagogo, Inc., is affected by the recall. In FDA testing, the product tested positive for yeast and mold and showed that it may contain Bacillus cereus bacteria.
The FDA says the bacteria could cause life-threatening reactions in immunocompromised people.

- Batch number: 2006491

Allergy Bee Gone was shipped nationwide to wholesale distributors, retail stores, and was sold online through the company’s website, as well as Amazon.com.
According to the FDA, Buzzagogo has worked to notify all of its distributors and customers via email, as well as arrange for the return or replacement of all recalled products.
