“Repetitive use of a nasal spray containing a gram-negative pathogen can potentially lead to colonization and subsequent infection which can be life threatening in certain patient populations, such as those with cystic fibrosis or  immuno-compromised,” the FDA’s report said.

To date, no injuries or illnesses have been reported.

Product Quest is contacting customers to arrange a return or replacement.
