Baby Gripe Water sold at Dollar General stores is being recalled due to a possible choking hazard, according to a U.S. Food and Drug Administration recall notice.
Manufacturer Kingston Pharma is voluntarily recalling all lots of DG Baby Gripe Water because it has “the presence of an undissolved ingredient, citrus flavonoid,” the notice said.
According to the product packaging, the herbal supplement with organic ginger and fennel extracts can relieve occasional stomach discomfort from gas, colic, fussiness, hiccups and teething.
“Use of the product should not be considered hazardous but could result in difficulty when swallowing the product for sensitive individuals,” the notice states. “To date, Kingston Pharma LLC has received one report of a one-week old infant having difficulty when swallowing the product and three complaints attributed to the undissolved citrus flavonoid.”
