“Product Quest is notifying its customers by oral and written communication and is arranging for return/replacement etc. of all recalled products,” as mentioned in the FDA statement. “Consumers/distributors/retailers that have product which is being recalled should stop using the product and return it to the place of purchase or discard the product.”
