Homeopathic product recall due to contamination

"Potentised" homeopathic sugar pills

“Potentised” homeopathic sugar pills

You can’t make this stuff up. ? These idiots accidentally got penicillin in their homeopathic ‘remedy’, requiring the whole 56 batches to be recalled:

A company making homeopathic remedies in the US has had to recall more than 50 different products from across its range after they were found to contain actual medicine.

Terra-Medica, based in Ferndale, Washington, promises to provide ?a wealth of education and high quality health products [to] holistic health care practitioners across the US?. ?

Yet in a series of tests by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), it was found that a variety of tablets, capsules, drops and suppositories ? with names like ?Pleo-QUENT? and ?Pleo-STOLO? ? actually contained quantities of penicillin.

The FDA said in a release on its website that Terra-Medica was ?voluntarily recalling 56 lots?.

So here we are in a situation where something that is harmless but is supposed to fix you has something in it that can actually fix you, but is considered harmful.

?FDA has determined that these products have the potential to contain penicillin or derivatives of penicillin, which may be produced during the fermentation process,? the agency said.

?In patients who are allergic to beta-lactam antibiotics, even at low levels, exposure to penicillin can result in a range of allergic reactions from mild rashes to severe and life-threatening anaphylactic reactions.?

Well, I guess, if you’re allergic to penicillin, this isn’t the best non-medicine to put your trust in.

Perhaps it is indeed safer to use a little anointed olive oil.
