Badger Sunscreen Recall: W.S. Badger Co. Pulls Lotion For Babies And Kids Due To Contamination

Posted: Updated:

W.S. Badger Co. has voluntarily recalled tubes of 4-ounce SPF 30 Kids Sunscreen Lotion due to microbial contamination, according to a statement by the company.

Tests apparently revealed Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Candida parapsilosis and Acremonium fungi in the lotion. However, the company said no "adverse reactions" had been reported. Badger CEO Bill Whyte apologized for the recall and clarified:

My understanding of the toxicologist's report is that the "organisms" found in the failed products are also commonly found in the environment and on our skin. They are unlikely to cause problems except for in immune-compromised persons or for persons with severely damaged skin.

The affected products are:
