Standard Process Recalls Three Supplements Due to Possible Salmonella Contamination

On June 29, 2012, Standard Process issued a voluntary recall of the company's Cataplex ACP, Cataplex C and Pancreatrophin PMG, after a routine FDA inspection uncovered potential Salmonella contamination in an ingredient found in these three products.

Cataplex A-C-P, the second recalled dietary supplement, contains similar ingredients, including vitamin C, and is marketed for the support of cardiovascular health, immune function and the maintenance of cells and tissues.
