The FDA collected a product sample of senna leaves powder, which is an ingredient that is used to make these products. It tested positive for Salmonella Gaminara, Salmonella Kentucky, and Salmonella Oranienburg. The notice states, “The FDA intends to use all available tools to remove contaminated product from the market.” The company has ceased the use of the suspect ingredient.

Anyone who has purchased these products should stop using them. Throw them away in a sealed container in a secure garbage can with a tight fitting lid, or take them back to the place of purchase for a refund.

Symptoms of salmonellosis can include fever, body aches, nausea, bloody diarrhea, and vomiting. Symptoms usually start 12 to 72 hours after ingesting a product contaminated with this pathogen. Anyone experiencing these symptoms should see a doctor.
