A company that makes homeopathic children’s medicines has recalled about one year’s worth of 32 types made to treat everything from chicken pox to coughs.

According to King Bio, “a small percentage” of products made between Aug. 1, 2017, and April 2018 tested positive for microbial contamination.

According to the recall: Administration or use of drug products with microbial contamination, could potentially result in increased infections that may require medical intervention, and could result in infections that could be life threatening to certain individuals.
