The company that makes Badger-brand sunscreens has voluntarily recalled some of its products due to microbial contamination. The company issue the following statement:
This voluntary recall has been initiated due to microbial contamination. The products were tested and found to be contaminated with Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Candida parapsilosis and Acremonium fungi (not known to be present in products sent to customers). There have been no adverse reactions reported due to use of these products. See below for a toxicological summary.
The above recalled lots passed all pre-production challenge testing and initial microbiological testing prior to sale, but during a routine quality check, microbial contamination was identified in select lots, which is why we are initiating the voluntary recall of the above products/lots.
There is a list of the lots number of the affected products available here. If you have any of the affected containers you can return it to the store where you bought it for a refund.
Then you can take your refund money and put it toward a trip to the pumpkin patch and you can protect your kids against the sun with long sleeves because hello fall!
