An herbal supplement used by both adults and infants has been recalled due to a choking hazard.

Kingston Pharma, LLC is voluntarily recalling all lots of “DG” Baby Gripe Water herbal supplement with organic ginger and fennel extracts due to the presence of an undissolved ingredient, citrus flavonoid, that could make swallowing difficult.

The product was distributed throughout the United States by Dollar General, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Kingston Pharma LLC has received one report of a one-week old infant having difficulty when swallowing the product and three complaints attributed to the undissolved citrus flavonoid.

1. Well geeze!

Babies are too young to gripe yet! They can't even talk for a year!

Seriously, that's messed up. Too bad so much of our food sources are synthetic chemicals anymore.
