More homeopathic products made in N. Carolina recalled

October 11, 2018

Contamination at a North Carolina-based homeopathic manufacturer has led to further recalls.

The Miami Herald reports Sprayology issued a voluntary nationwide recall of 22 homeopathic water-based oral sprays Tuesday, citing possible microbial contamination at Asheville-based contract manufacturer King Bio.

King Bio recalled hundreds of its own products at the end of August, and Silver Star and MediNatura issued precautionary recalls last week.

Sprayology's parent , Eight and Company, said in the Food and Drug Administration release it hadn't yet received reports of adverse effects.

The various recalled products are marketed as assisting with a host of issues, including jet lag, bruising, acne, hangovers and "sexual support."

The Asheville Citizen-Times reported in 2017 King Bio manufactured more than 500 of its own products and more than 500 products for other companies.
