Badger Recalls Sunscreens

W.S. Badger Co. Inc. is voluntarily recalling all lots of its 4oz SPF 30 Baby Sunscreen Lotion and one lot of its 4oz SPF 30 Kids Sunscreen Lotion (lot # 3164A) due to microbial contamination. The products were tested and found to be contaminated with Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Candida parapsilosis and Acremonium fungi.

No adverse reactions have been reported in connection with these products.

Both sunscreens are sold in the USA and Canada online and at major retailers as well as independent food co-ops and pharmacies.

"As a father and grandfather, the safety and well-being of children is my highest priority," said Badger founder and CEO Bill Whyte. "All of these lots passed the required microbiological and comprehensive challenge testing prior to sale. It was during routine re-testing that we discovered that the preservative system in several lots had been compromised. In our 18-year history, this voluntary recall is a first. We continue to conduct rigorous testing and are taking steps to ensure this doesn't happen in the future."
