The government agency issued the warning Friday after receiving “reports from Texas that four children have been hospitalized with botulism”, which is a “rare but serious” condition that can cause death in some cases.
The honey suits the used babies were bought in Mexico, although similar products can be found through online retailers in the United States, the federal authority said.
Botulism is “caused by a toxin that attacks the nerves of the body and causes breathing difficulties, muscle paralysis and even death”, according to the FDA. The toxin is typically produced by the Clostridium botulin bacteria.
“Honey is a known source of Clostridium botulinum spores, which can propagate in a child’s immature digestive system and have previously been involved in some cases of childbotulism,” the FDA explains online.
The FDA said that all parents who bought a honey match – either a dipped substance or filled with it – should “stop using it and throw it immediately.”
