CVS nasal spray recalled amid fears of ‘microbiological contamination’

CVS is warning its customers to check their medicine cabinets.

A nasal spray sold at CVS is being recalled after concerns the product could be contaminated, according to the Food and Drug Administration.

The contaminant, identified as Pseudomonas aeruginosa, could be life-threatening for some patients, who suffer from cystic fibrosis or are immuno-compromised. Over 16,000 units of the 0.5 fluid ounce bottle are included in the recall. Product Quest, the company behind the spray, is in the process of notifying customers. So far, there have been no reports of any illnesses related to the recall.
