Vicks Nasal Spray Recalled
Posted by Shifrah on Friday, November 20, 2009
Vicks nasal spray has been recalled due to bacterial contamination.
CNN Health reports today on Procter & Gamble's recall of Vicks Sinex nasal spray in the United States, Britain, and Germany. The voluntary recall was announced after bacteria was found in some of the product made in Germany.

Although there haven't been any reports of illness from the contamination, the bacteria could potentially cause serious infections in people with lung conditions or weakened immune systems. There is not much risk to healthy individuals.

In the United States, the specific recalled product is Vicks Sinex Vapospray 12 Hour Decongestant Ultra Fine Mist with a lot number of 9239028831.

Nasal sprays are often used by individuals experiencing nasal symptoms due to allergies or colds. As an alternative to Vicks, try our natural sinus relief products, including Sinol Allergy and Sinus Relief Spray and Clear-Ease Natural Fruit Enzyme Lozenges.
