Kingston Pharmaceuticals says the undissolved ingredient, citrus flavonoid, could be difficult for "sensitive individuals" to swallow, but the product shouldn't be considered hazardous.

The company has received one report of a one-week-old infant that had difficulty swallowing the product. Three additional complaints the company received were attributed to the undissolved ingredient.

Customers who bought this product should throw it away.
