Thousands of sunscreen lotions with harmful contaminants recalled

Posted by Paul Levin | Oct 04, 2013 | 0 Comments

Thousands of sunscreen lotion tubes for babies and kids have been voluntarily recalled by the manufacturer – W.S. Badger Co. Inc. – due to possible microbial contamination that may harm users. NBC News broke news of the recall on Wednesday, September 25.

The recall affects 30,000 tubes of 4 oz. SPF 30 baby and kids' sunscreen lotion that may contain harmful Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Candida parapsilosis, and Acremonium fungi. The contaminants in the recalled sunscreen lotions may cause illnesses to humans and animals.

Though the products passed the required test before its release, its manufacturer said the preservatives used in the lotions “had been compromised” when it was routinely tested again. There have been no reports of illnesses as of yet.

The firm assured the public that they will conduct further testing of the recalled products to prevent the problem from happening again.

Fortunately, no one is reported to have been harmed by this dangerous product. However, at the Law Offices of Paul Levin, our lawyers know that many adults and children in Connecticut suffer serious losses as a result of negligent manufacturers and dangerous products.
