A brand of baby’s cough syrup sold nationwide at Dollar General retail stores is being recalled.

Kingston Pharma is recalling one lot of its 2-fluid ounce size bottles of DG Health Naturals Baby Cough Syrup + Mucus due to a possible health risk.

The bottles could be contaminated with bacillus cereus/bacillus circulans, which could potentially lead to vomiting or diarrhea.

Most often, illnesses associated with the bacteria are mild and self-limiting, although more serious and even lethal cases could occur.

The product comes in a carton labeled DG/Health Baby Cough Syrup + Mucus and is marked Lot KL180157 with the expiration date of 11-20.

So far, no illnesses have been reported in connection to the recalled product.

Consumers who purchased the product are being urged to return it for a full refund.

On the Central Coast, there are Dollar General stores in San Miguel and Lompoc.
