WASHINGTON – A health products company warned on Wednesday that some of its dietary supplements may be contaminated with bacteria that can cause blindness.
The Master's Miracle Inc. (search), based in Minneapolis, said its Fortified Mineral Neutralizer (search) and Ultra Fortified Mineral Neutralizer dietary supplements are at risk of bacterial contamination. According to the Food and Drug Administration, some Master's Miracle distributors have been promoting the use of the supplements in people's eyes. If contaminated product comes in contact with the eyes, it could lead to serious injury, including blindness.
The FDA also said the supplements do not meet FDA (search) sterility standards for eye products and should not be used or marketed that way.
The supplements come in 8-ounce, 20-ounce and 1-gallon size containers.
For more information, consumers can call the company at 1-763-493-3200 between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. EDT.
