A pharmaceutical company is recalling 32 medications for children and infants due to concerns of microbial contamination.

A small percentage of our products produced between 08/01/2017 and 04/2018 have tested positive for microbial contamination.

All of the products are now being recalled out of an abundance of caution.

The contamination may result in increased infections that could require medical intervention and possibly result in life threatening infections to certain individuals. The products were distributed nationwide from August 2017 through July 2018.

Although the initial release is for three days her lawyer is hopeful that this can be extended, her husband said. Richard Ratcliffe said her temporary release was a "happy surprise" and she is with family in Damavand.

Among the products are Kids Stress and Anxiety, Kids Sleeping Aid and Children's Ear Relief Formula.

Consumers or distributors with the affected products must discontinue use or distribution, and contact King Bio to arrange for the return or replacement of the product.

There have not yet been any reports of injury or illness resulting from these medications.
