Break Ventures/California Basics


Break Ventures/California Basics is recalling its Dietary Supplement “Zero for Him 150ct” Lot#1710-638 (the “Product”) because it may be contaminated with Salmonella, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.

The Product was distributed nationwide through Amazon. It comes in a 400cc, Light Amber PETE bottle marked with lot #1710-638 on the bottom and with an expiration date of November 2020 stamped on the side.

No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with the Product.

The potential for contamination was noted after routine testing by the company revealed the presence of Salmonellain 1 bottle. We have tested and re-tested the Product and no presence of Salmonellawas subsequently found. However, out of abundance of caution, we have decided to recall this Product.

Distribution of the Product has been suspended while FDA and the company continue their investigation as to the source of the Salmonellapresentin that aforementioned 1 bottle.

Consumers who have purchased Zero for Him Lot#1710-638 are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with additional questions may contact the company at 323-375-5953.
