Pill Sold Nationwide Recalled for Containing Poisonous Plant



The FDA has issued a recall alert for two lots of a dietary supplement product, after they were found to contain a poisonous plant, posing a serious health risk to people who may have purchased the pills.

The Food and Drug Administration reports online that G.A. Mart dba H&Natural is voluntarily recalling two lots of its H&NATURAL TejoRoot, 10g pills alongside two lots of H&NATUAL Brazil Seed, .167g seeds sold to consumers nationwide. A random test conducted by the FDA discovered that these lots contained yellow oleander, a poisonous plant native to Mexico and Central America.

Ingesting this plant can lead to neurologic, gastrointestinal and cardiovascular adverse health effects that may be severe or even fatal in some cases. Symptoms in those who have come into contact with the plant include the following:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Dizziness
  • Diarrhea
  • Abdominal pain
  • Cardiac changes
  • Dysrhythmia

Thus far, only one report of gastrointestinal illness has been received by G.A. Mart, with the individual reporting having painful symptoms, which included internal bleeding in connection to H&NATURAL TejoRoot. No reports of illness have been received in connection to H&NATURAL Brazil seed yet.

The FDA says TejoRoot and Brazil Seed were sold through online sources such as Amazon and www.handnatural.com. This also includes Walmart’s online shopping site. The recalled lots are labeled with expiration dates of 3/24 and 5/24. Full product information on the recalled pills can be found below:
