"These bacteria pose little risk to healthy Canadians, as their bodies are able to successfully fight off infections. For someone whose immune system has been weakened by other serious illnesses, especially cystic fibrosis, these bacteria can cause serious infections, including pneumonia and blood infection."

Batches with lot Nos. SA1229ANA and SA1229ANB have been recalled and users can contact the manufacturer at 888 346-4652 for further clarification.
