RevitaDerm Lot Recalled over Contamination with Bacteria

Posted on by in News

Patients who have got RevitaDerm Wound Care Gel 1.0 ounce bottle or 3.0 ounce tubes of the recalled lot are advised to stop using it immediately and return unused product to the dispensing physician.

Prevention reported that preterm babies are especially at risk of Bacillus cereus infection. Common symptoms of the infection include nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. The story cites FDA saying that no adverse effects have yet been reported by consumers.

No adverse events related to this recall have been reported yet.

Consumers who have any questions regarding the RevitaDerm recall are asked to contact the Blaine Labs at 800-307-8818 or info@blainelabs.com. If you have used the gel and expeience any adverse effects, please report to the FDA here.
