The FDA has issued a voluntary recall of some Magnesium Citrate solutions due to an increased risk of infection in immunocompromised patients. This recall impacts the lemon, cherry, and grape flavor of Magnesium Citrate products.
If you have purchased a colonoscopy prep kit directly from MNGI Digestive Health, your Magnesium Citrate product is NOT impacted by the recall. However, use caution when purchasing this product directly from the store or pharmacy.
Prep kits are still available at MNGI Digestive Health and can be ordered online or picked up at any of our endoscopy center locations (Bloomington, Coon Rapids, Eagan, Maple Grove, Plymouth, Vadnais Heights, Woodbury) between 8:00 am and 3:30 pm Monday through Friday.
Supporting our patients during times of uncertainty, especially before important medical procedures, is a priority for all of our caregivers at MNGI Digestive Health. If you have any questions about this recall, please give us a call at (612) 871-1145. Our teams are ready to assist you in finding the appropriate products to complete your prep or answer any questions or concerns. Thank you!
