W.S. Badger Co., Inc., a New Hampshire-based sunscreen company, has announced the complete recall of its 4-ounce SPF 30 Baby Sunscreen Lotion and one lot of its 4-ounce SPF 30 Kids Sunscreen Lotion. The recall comes after finding that the sunscreen has potentially been contaminated with bacteria and fungus.
The company stated that the sunscreen passed initial safety tests before it was shipped. But the contaminations by Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Candida parapsilosis, and Acremonium fungi were discovered in some of the sunscreen during a standard re-test of the products.
The bacteria and fungus found in the sunscreen can cause a range of personal injuries, including skin rashes, ear infections, and blood infections, which can lead to pneumonia, severe illness, or wrongful death.
Badger implemented the recall voluntarily, and stated that its other products are not affected by the potential contamination.
No illnesses or personal injuries have been reported from the contamination, but Badger is asking its customers to return their recalled defective products for a full refund.
