Last week King Bio, the manufacturer of Dr. King’s products, issued a voluntary recall for 32 of its infant and kid products due to a possible microbial contamination. Representatives for King Bio referred Red Tricycle to a message from Dr. King with full info on the recall.

While the company did not disclose the exact microbial contamination, it did recall the products out of an abundance of caution. It states that further use of the product could result in worsening infections that would require medical intervention and potentially life-threatening infections for some.
