FDA warns – H&Natural TejoRoot, H&Natural Brazil Seed Dietary Supplements recalled due to presence of poisonous plant

According to the FDA, two lots of H&Natural TejoRoot and H&Natural Brazil Seed Dietary Supplements in 10g pills, as well as two lots of H&Natural Brazil Seed in .167g seeds, have been voluntarily recalled by San Luis, Arizona-based G.A. Mart dba H&Natural.

The consumer-level recall was initiated by the company on February 23, 2024 after officials learned, via random testing conducted by the FDA, that the products contain yellow oleander, a plant known to be poisonous and which is native to Mexico and Central America.

Consumers are advised that consuming yellow oleander may lead to adverse health effects across neurologic, gastrointestinal and cardiovascular systems, and which could turn severe or sometimes fatal. Those affected may suffer “nausea, vomiting, dizziness, diarrhea, abdominal pain, cardia changes, dysrhythmia and more.”

In connection to H&Natural TejoRoot, H&Natural has been made aware of a single report of gastrointestinal illness which described painful symptoms and internal bleeding. To date, the company has not been alerted to any adverse events linked to H&Natural Brazil Seed.
