Latest News:  Shark Cartilage Supplement Recalled
(Date Posted: 10/24/2014)

On October 17, 2014, AMS Health Sciences, LLC issued a voluntary recall of one lot of Saba Shark Cartilage Complex because it has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.

Salmonella is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Salmonella infection can produce fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.

Recalled Saba Shark Cartilage Complex was sold between February and August 2014 on the company's website, www.sabaforlife.com. It is packaged in a black screw-top bottle with "saba" in red letters and "shark cartilage complex" in white letters which contains sixty 500 mg capsules. It can be identified by the following:

  • Lot Number: 416349
  • Expiration Date: 08/16

Consumers who have purchased this supplement should discontinue use immediately and may request a refund from the company. Consumers and healthcare providers are also encouraged to report any adverse reactions to the FDA's MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting Program.

See the Encyclopedia article on Shark Cartilage for more information about this ingredient.
