Nature's Plus Brand Dietary Supplement Recalled

Melville, NY (SafetyAlerts) - Natural Organics is recalling approximately 9,800 bottles of its Nature's Plus dietary supplement because the product may be contaminated with salmonella.

No illnesses have been reported.

The product was distributed nationwide from February to May and involves bottles of Nature's Plus brand supplements that contain the raw material pepsin, the manufacturer stated.

The company said its products had tested negative for salmonella, but the recall was launched after random samples tested at a supplier, American Laboratories Inc., of Omaha, Neb., indicated the possibility of salmonella.

Salmonella can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in children, the frail and the elderly. Healthy persons infected with salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea, nausea and vomiting.

The products being recalled are packaged in brown bottles with yellow and green labels. Lot numbers are on the bottom of each container. They were distributed between Feb. 12 and May 1.

Product affected by the recall include:

  • Digestive Enzyme, product number 4450, lot number 1008884.

  • Nature Cleanse Botanicleanse Tabs, product number 1138, lot number 1008597.

  • Betaine HCL, product number 4370, lot number 1006874.
