Eclectic issued this voluntary recall because a routine audit of micro-testing records revealed that the micro-tests for one batch of Gotu Kola and one batch of Bladderwrack had conflicting lab results — one positive and one negative for Salmonella.

No adverse effects or illnesses have been reported to date in connection with either of these products.
