Pharmaceutical company King Bio is recalling 32 of its children's medications because of "microbial contamination," according the Food and Drug Administration. The FDA said that contamination could prove "life-threatening" to some people.

King Bio said that a "small percentage" of products which were produced between Aug. 1, 2017 and April 2018 tested positive for the contamination. The company said it is recalling all products with certain lot numbers out of an "abundance of caution." No injuries or illnesses have been reported to date.

All of King Bio's distributors and consumers will be notified by letter. The company said it will arrange for return and replacement of all recalled products. If you have any questions or have a recalled product, you can contact King Bio by emailing recall@kingbio.com or by calling 866-298-2740.
