Thyroid Supplement Recalled Due to Salmonella

On June 11, 2024, Penn Herb Company Ltd issued a recall of 51 bottles of Nature’s Wonderland Thyroid Formula capsules after FDA testing revealed the products to be contaminated with Salmonella. The capsules are promoted to support thyroid function and contain a blend of herbal ingredients including Iceland and Irish moss, kelp, parsley, and water cress.

Salmonella is an organism that has been linked to fatal infection in young children, frail or elderly adults, and people with weakened immune systems. In healthy adults, Salmonella can produce fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare cases, Salmonella infection 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.

See ConsumerLab’s Reviews of Kelp Supplements, Seaweed Snacks and Foods, and Fruits, Veggies, and Greens Supplements for tests of related products.

Recalled Nature’s Wonderland Thyroid Formula products (see product photos) were distributed through the company website and retail store and are packaged in a white plastic bottle with a blue cap. Recalled products can be further identified by the item number: Sm32x and lot number: 23289A.

Penn Herb Company Ltd is notifying consumers of the recall directly. Consumers who have affected products should immediately discontinue use and return the product to its place of purchase for a full refund.
