Here is news from the FDA site:

 

Insight Pharmaceuticals, LLC of Langhorne, Pa., is recalling one lot (34,092 bottles) of Nostrilla Nasal Decongestant nasal spray to the consumer level, because it may contain the bacteria Burkholderia cepacia.

Burkholderia cepacia may cause serious infection in individuals with a compromised immune system or chronic lung condition (i.e. cystic fibrosis).  However, the possibility of infection is remote in healthy individuals.

Nostrilla Nasal Decongestant, lot #11G075, UPC Code 6373673005, was distributed nationwide through normal retail outlets and pharmacies. The product comes in a 1/2 ounce, plastic bottle marked with lot #11G075 on the label and with an expiration date of 05/2014 stamped on the side. No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.

The recall was initiated following internal investigations which determined the potential presence of a microbial contaminant that exceeds the product specifications and may consequently result in a subpar product. This contaminant has been found sporadically throughout only the respective manufacturing lot, #11G075.

Consumers who have purchased “Nostrilla Decongestant, lot #11G075” are urged to return the product and contact the company at 1-877-546-9059 Monday through Friday from 9 am-5 pm EST time zone.  Consumers should contact their physician or healthcare provider if they have experienced any problems that may be related to taking or using this product

Adverse reactions or quality problems experienced with the use of this product may be reported to the FDA’s MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting program either online, by regular mail or by fax.
