Children and Baby Sunscreen Recalled

Thank goodness it's sweater season! A children's and baby suncreen by Badger has been recalled after some bottles tested positive for three different bacterias. That sounds gross, doesn't it?

Routine quality checks on the 4-ounce SPF 30 Baby Sunscreen Lotion and the 4-ounce SPF 30 Kids Sunscreen Lotion found Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Candida parapsilosis and Acremonium fungis. While the last one (and scariest sounding one) was discovered in an opened, and therefore contaminated, bottle it still makes the "bad" list.

Since this batch went out in February, it's possible you've already used Badger on your kiddos. To put your mind at ease, so far no ill effects of the sunscreen have been reported. Still, you don't want that mess up in your kid's business so check your cabinets before sending the kids outside.

The lot numbers you should be on the lookout for include:

  • SPF 30 Baby Sunscreen Lotion tubes with UPC codes of 34084490091 and 634084490114. (Lot #'s 3024A, 3057B, 3063A, 3063B, 3132A, 3133A)
  • SPF 30 Kids Sunscreen Lotion tubes with UPC codes of 634084490145 and 634084490169 ( Lot # 3164A)

If you've got any of these bad boys in your home, return those bottles to your retailer for a full refund, or contact Badger at 1-800-603-6100 or recalls@badgerbalm.com.

Do you have this in your house?
