Based on findings from this FDA investigation, Ameridose, LLC in Westborough, Massachusetts, is conducting a voluntary recall of any unexpired products.
The Arkansas Department of Health (ADH) is working with the FDA and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to identify Ameridose products that may have been sent to Arkansas facilities in order to assure that the products are removed from the shelves.
The ADH will be contacting affected facilities and encouraging them to take appropriate action.
According to Nate Smith, MD, ADH deputy director and state epidemiologist, "To date, there are no reported human illnesses associated with Ameridose products."
The ADH will issue further advisories as deemed necessary.
