WishGarden Cord Care and Goldenseal Powder Recall News – WishGarden Herbs, Inc. (WishGarden) has issued a recall for its Cord Care Powder and Goldenseal Powder products due to being contaminated with Cronobacter sakazakii bacteria.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) had previously warned the public on August 14, 2020 about Maison Terre’s similar Goldenseal Root Powder product. The product was contaminated with multiple microorganisms, one of which was Cronobacter sakazakii, leading to an infant death. Maison Terre recalled the affected product on August 17, 2020.

Cronobacter Information

Per the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Cronobacter infections have been reported in all age groups. However, infants, the elderly, and people with immunocompromising conditions appear to be at greatest risk of Cronobacter infection and can experience more severe symptoms. Meningitis due to Cronobacter occurs almost exclusively among infants in the first 2 months of life.

A healthcare provider should be consulted immediately if any adverse symptoms are noted.
