A voluntary recall has been issued for ‘Baby Gripe Water’ sold at Dollar General stores across the country due to potential choking hazards.

The herbal supplement, according to the FDA, could contain an undissolved ingredient, citrus flavonoid, which may make swallowing the product difficult. The product is not considered hazardous, according to the FDA.
