FDA recalls children’s allergy meds over mold, yeast concerns
WASHINGTON, D.C. (WHNT) — A homeopathic allergy medicine for kids is being voluntarily recalled over concerns of “elevated levels of yeast and mold,” the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said.
One lot of Allergy Bee Gone for Kids Nasal Swab Remedy, made by Buzzagogo, Inc., is affected by the recall. During FDA testing, the product tested positive for yeast and mold and showed that it possibly contained the bacteria Bacillus cereus.

Allergy Bee Gone was shipped nationwide to wholesale distributors, retail stores and has been sold online on the company’s website, as well as on Amazon.com.
According to the FDA, Buzzagogo has been working to notify all of its distributors and customers by email, along with arranging for the return or replacement of all of the recalled products.
