On January 27th, 2012, Johnson & Johnson issued a voluntary recall from several retailers of their Aveeno Baby Calming Comfort Lotion as a precautionary measure only.
What do you need to know about this Recall?
This recall is being initiated as a precautionary measure after testing of a product sample by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and is not considered to be a consumer level recall and no action is required by consumers.. The FDA test had indicated that the lot exceeded the specifications for common bacteria, though extensive further testing by an independent laboratory afterward did not show that specifications were exceeded. However, Johnson & Johnson Consumer Companies, Inc. has voluntarily initiated this recall out of an abundance of caution. This action is not being undertaken on the basis of adverse events and the potential for adverse health effects is remote. Other lots of Aveeno Baby Calming Comfort Lotion are not affected by this recall and still remain available for consumer purchase.
The retailers from which the recall took place, were located in the states of Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee and Texasand this recall is being conducted with the knowledge of the FDA.
To specifically identify the actual product that is being recalled, the lot number and UPC code for the recalled product are embossed on the tubes and include Lot # 0161LK with UPC Code # 38137-0036456.
