The Texas Department of State Health Services issued an alert to warn the public about honey pacifiers from Mexico causing botulism after four babies got hospitalized.

Hospitalizations of these infants occurred between mid-August until the end of October according to the FDA. They also emphasize that one should never feed babies honey before not at least one year old.

Honey can contain spores of bacteria called Clostridium botulinum. These bacteria secrete a neurotoxin named the botulinum toxin and can build up in the gut and then spread to other parts of the body, paralyzing muscles as it goes.

Babies have not built up natural bacteria to cope with this yet and left untreated it can be life-threatening. Symptoms include difficulty seeing, breathing, moving, swallowing, crying and talking.

If your baby displays any of those symptoms, you are advised to take your baby to the doctor immediately. The FDA recommended that anyone who purchased or used a honey pacifier to stop using it and discard it. They are also advising retailers to discontinue the products.

Earlier this month the FDA also recalled medicine used to treat high blood pressure. The recall is due to contamination that can cause cancer in certain lots of Irbesartan.

The drugs will have ‘GSMS Inc’ or ‘Westminster Pharmaceuticals’ on the label. Irbesartan blocks a potent chemical in the blood called angiotensin, causing muscle surrounding blood vessels to contract from binding with angiotensin II receptors.

The FDA stated that the recalled drugs might contain an N-Nitrosodiethylamine, which is used in gasoline as a stabilizer and also in the making of liquid rocket fuel.

They also stress that only medicine containing Valsartan or Irbesartan is recalled and represent about 1% of Irbesartan products in the United States. If your drug is on the recall list below, the FDA urges people to get a replacement from your doctor or pharmacist.
