Maison Terre Recalls Organic Goldenseal Root Powder

Maison Terre is recalling all lots of its Goldenseal Root Powder for microbial contamination, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said in a statement.

The recall was initiated after the FDA laboratory analysis of product samples found these products to be contaminated with various microorganisms including: Enterobacter cloacae, Cronobacter sakazakii, Cronobacter dublinensis, among others.

According to the agency, the use of contaminated product in otherwise healthy patients can result in infections necessitating antimicrobial and potentially surgical treatment.

Meanwhile, the use of the contaminated product by individuals with weak immune systems and infants could result in death.

Maison Terre has received a report of one infant death associated with use of this product on the umbilical cord stump.

The affected product was purchased from Sacramento, California-based Starwest Botanicals, and repackaged to the consumer level. The product is a yellow colored powder that comes in a clear plastic bag, net weight of 1 oz.

The North Little Rock, Arkansas based company’s recalled Goldenseal Root Powder was distributed across the country to customers who ordered through and purchased between the dates of 01/25/2015 to 08/04/2020.

Customers who have purchased the Goldenseal Root Powder are urged to dispose of any unused portion and contact the firm for a refund.

In recent recalls, Faribault Foods Inc. called back about 15,134 pounds of canned soup product due to misbranding and undeclared allergens. Serafin Fishery also recalled Salmon Dip and Whitefish Dip citing the possible presence of undeclared anchovies, eggs, milk and soy, known allergens.
