When you purchase a health product at the store, you probably assume that it’s safe to use. After all, these items are supposed to improve your well-being, not put it at risk. Unfortunately, however, some companies are not as reputable as others, and they may make mistakes. That’s why it’s vital that you choose a health product provider you truly trust and keep an eye out for any recalls. At Clear Revive, we’ve made it our mission to educate our customers and enhance their lives with our natural, effective nasal spray. Read on to learn more about nasal spray recalls and how you can ensure your nose stays safe.
What is a Recall?
You may have heard of certain foods or items being “recalled” before, but what does this actually mean? According to the U.S. government website, “a recall is an action taken by a manufacturer, or the government, to protect the public from products (such as medications, food, vehicles, child safety seats, cosmetics, and more) that may cause health or safety problems.” For example, an eyeshadow might be recalled if it’s found to cause a rash, or a medication might be recalled if it was causing extreme, unpredicted side effects. The U.S. government website explains, “some recalls ban the sale of an item, while others ask consumers to return the item for replacement or repair.” Essentially, recalled products are unsafe to use, so they must either be returned or fixed.
Why Might Nasal Spray Be Unsafe?
You might think of nasal spray as a completely harmless product and, in an ideal world, it should be. However, since nasal spray goes inside your body, it’s important that it be clean, properly formulated, and thoroughly tested. A nasal spray might be unsafe if:
It was not created in a sterile environment.
The bottle or spray function was poorly designed.
The ingredients used were not properly evaluated and could cause irritation.
It interacts poorly with other treatments, products, or medications a person might use along with it.
The drugs contained in the spray (if any) are deemed dangerous due to their side effects or haven’t been adequately vetted by medical professionals.
These are just a few of the reasons a nasal spray could become a health hazard.
The Recent Recall
It’s one thing to know that your nasal spray could cause a problem, but do these products ever actually get recalled? In fact, one popular nasal spray was taken off the market in the last six months. On August 28, 2018, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reported: “Product Quest Manufacturing...announced its voluntary recall of...12 Hour Sinus Relief Nasal Mist due to a finding of microbial contamination identified as Pseudomonas aeruginosa.” In an effort to put as few consumers at risk as possible, the company “decided to expand the recall to include all lots of nasal products and baby oral gels currently within expiration that were manufactured at the company’s Florida facility.”
Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a serious health issue because, as the FDA pointed out, “repetitive use of a nasal spray or other nasal product containing a gram-negative pathogen [the kind of bacteria Pseudomonas aeruginosa is] can potentially lead to colonization and subsequent infection which can be life threatening in certain patient populations, such as those with cystic fibrosis or immune-compromised individuals” as well as “babies or very young children.” In short, this nasal spray could make consumers sick or even be fatal to those who are already vulnerable for some reason.
How Can You Protect Yourself?
It can be unnerving to imagine that your nasal spray could hurt you. Fortunately, this is a relatively easy problem to solve. You can safeguard your health by:
Staying updated on the latest recalls and consumer reports, so you know which products to either return or avoid entirely.
Ensuring you understand the potential effects of ingredients in your nasal spray.
Purchasing your nasal spray from a company that earns your trust by providing clear information about ingredients, health warnings, and more. Clear Revive endeavors to be this type of responsible health product provider for our customers.
If you follow the above advice, you should be able to simply enjoy the benefits of your nasal spray without worrying about its possible negative effects.
