Centurion Labs recalls cold medicine over possible bacterial contamination

Centurion Labs recalled its Ninjacof and Ninjacof A cold medicine over potential bacterial contamination.

The FDA believes the cold medicine may have been manufactured in a PharmaTech facility linked to products contaminated by the bacteria. Numerous drug distributors have issued recalls in the last month relating to drugs manufactured by PharmaTech.

Centurion Labs is notifying customers in 14 states about the recall. The company has not found B. cepacia in the recalled product or received any customer complaints regarding medicine.
