W.S. Badger Company has recalled around 30,000 tubes of Badger sunscreen amid suspicion of bacteria, yeast and fungus contamination. The products are especially for kids and babies.
The major goof was discovered during a routine quality check. During the investigation, the sunscreen tested positive for three microbes.
Meanwhile, no consumers have notified the company of any side effects.
The company decided to recall the sunscreens as a precautionary measure, sources from the firm said.
In a released statement, Bill Whyte, CEO of W.S Badger Company, Inc said, “To be on the safe side, we recalled all of the lots of SPF 30 Baby Sunscreen Lotions, although only a few of them were found to be compromised.”
Turning down the fear of any disaster, Whyte said, “My short answer is, for normally healthy persons, this should not have caused any problem.”
The company says, the organic sunscreens previously passed two rounds of testing before being sold. However, the microbes discovered are commonly found throughout nature and are not considered to be dangerous. But there is some risk of infection if the sunscreen was applied to an open wound, according to the statement.
