Paddywax Recalls Fragrance Diffusers

September 4, 2013

Due to violation of the FHSA labeling requirements.

 In a voluntary recall with the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Paddywax LLC, of Franklin, Tenn. recently recalled its fragrance diffusers due to violation of Federal Hazardous Substances Act  (FHSA) labeling requirements by omitting the presence of petroleum distillates. Petroleum distillates pose an aspiration hazard if swallowed, said the recall.

About 2,100 units were part of this notice, which included “Eco” and “Relish” Paddywax diffusers sold in three fragrances: Eco Blood Orange with Bergamot, Eco Grapefruit with Coriander and Relish Ocean Tide with Sea Salt. The diffusers were sold in a solid tan cylinder-shaped container measuring about 11-inches high by 2-3/4 inch diameter. The diffuser includes a green or blue glass vase and evaporating diffuser sticks. “Paddywax” and the fragrance name are printed on the front of the cylinder. 

Manufactured in the US, the SKUs were sold at small gift shops, grocery, pharmacy, plant nurseries and spas nationwide and online at www.Paddywax.com from January 2013 through April 2013 for about $28.
