If you have a baby and you bought some cough syrup at Dollar General, you need to read this article because there is a recall on cough syrup that could put your baby at risk.

According to WZZM, there is a particular infant cough syrup that is being sold at Dollar General stores that is being pulled from shelves due to contamination with bacteria that could cause diarrhea, vomiting and is some extreme cases, could be fatal to your baby.

If you have purchased Kingston Pharma DG/health Naturals baby Cough Syrup + Mucus you need to return to point of purchase or throw it away. The FDA says it could be contaminated with Bacillus cereus or Bacillus cirulans.

The bottles to watch out for have a Lot number of KL180157. There is an expiration date of 11/20 and you will find that on the bottom of the carton or on the back of the bottle label.

Bacillus when found in products can cause two forms of gastrointestinal illness. This will cause vomiting and or diarrhea.

So far the company says there have been zero reports of illness related to the recall but my question is...how did they know to recall the cough syrup.

Kingston Pharma has stopped all production of the cough syrup in order to locate the source of contamination.
