(Best Syndication News) - The US Food and Drug Administration announced the recall of Wholistic Herbs Inc.’s “Koff & Kold” and “Kold Sore” spray products because they have not been properly tested for safety. There is a danger of the products being non-sterile, which could cause infections in the eyes or nose. The eye product could cause vision loss in some cases.

The Kold Sore product is used for the eyes to treat dry eye or pink eye, while the Koff & Kold product is used in the nose and throat for treatments of colds, flu, cough, stuffy nose, or a sinus infection.

The FDA found several labeling problems with the products during a routine inspection.

The products were sold between March 2009 through February 2012 in retail stores. They were distributed to stores in Texas, California, Washington, Virginia, New Jersey, New York, Maryland, Illinois, Georgia, Nevada, Arizona, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Florida. Acupuncture clinics also sold the product, and were sold online at naturalapothecary.com website.

The FDA recommends people who have the Koff & Kold or the Kold Sore products to stop using them. Consumers can return the items to the store to get a refund. The Wholistic Herb Inc. can be contacted at 214-691-3210 on Monday through Friday between 9:00am and 5:00pm CST for further questions.
