FLORIDA — The Food and Drug Administration has recalled nasal products and baby oral gels manufactured at Product Quest Manufacturing LLC’s Florida facility due to possible microbial contamination.

On Tuesday, Product Quest Manufacturing voluntarily recalled Lot# 173089J of CVS Health 12 Hour Sinus Relief Nasal Mist due to a finding of microbial contamination identified as Pseudomonas aeruginosa, according to the FDA.

Out of caution, Product Quest reportedly expanded the recall to all lots of nasal and baby oral gels within the expiration that were manufactured at the Florida facility.

There is no known microbial contamination associated with the nasal products and baby oral gels included in the expanded recall; however, the FDA says the recall should be carried out to the retail level.

The recall includes products sold by CVS, Discount Drug Mart, Dollar General, Family Dollar, Harmon, Meijer, Rexall, Rite Aid and Walgreens.

The FDA says Product Quest will be notifying its customers and is arranging for return and replacement of all recalled products.

Consumers with questions regarding this recall can contact Product Quest Manufacturing LLC at 704-939-4342, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., EST.
