International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day Is On May 12, 2018
Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

    In haste as still not caught up on emails after losing internet access for 2 weeks.

    Whilst this case relates to a baby, the contamination may also harm others, as detailed in the piece below.

    Thank you for the heads up @MeSci. I assume the contamination is specific to the production of the probiotic ingredients and not something with their general production. I use some of their other products so it's a little concerning.

    I am glad I always steer away from Solgar. I just feel like they aren´t very quality-driven.

    That is really tragic to hear, another reason that I wish there higher emphasis on quality control in a non FDA regulated area. :(
