Two pet drugs and six human drugs were recalled Thursday by Silver Star Brands after they tested positive for having a microbial contamination, according to a company-written, FDA-posted recall notice.
“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 and animals,” the notice says. “To date, Silver Star Brands, Inc. has not received any reports of adverse events related to this recall.”
If that sounds familiar, it’s similar to what MediNatura put in its announcement of their nasal spray and throat spray recall earlier this week. Both Silver Star and MediNatura got their products from King Bio, which recalled all its water-based medicines in August. Silver Star’s products were made at King Bio’s Asheville, NC, facility.
