FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — November 17, 2014 — Solgar, Inc., of Leonia, NJ, is voluntarily recalling ABC Dophilus® Powder.

This is a rare infection that may cause health problems to consumers, particularly pre-mature infants/infants, children, and those with weakened immune systems. Although, it may also occur (rarely) in people who are otherwise healthy. ABC Dophilus was used as part of the in-hospital course of treatment for a very preterm infant (<32 week gestation) who suffered from multiple complications, including intestinal mucormycosis, and died on October 11, 2014. Susceptible consumers should consult with their physician or health care provider if they have used this product.
