Johnson & Johnson Consumer Inc. announced today it has initiated a voluntary recall of a single lot of its Johnson’s Baby Powder. This is in response to a US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) testing on samples from a single bottle purchased from an online retailer that indicated the presence of sub-trace levels of chrysotile asbestos. The company said in a press release today, the sub-trace levels were “no greater than 0.00002%.”
Johnson & Johnson is doing a voluntary recall of lot #22318RB of Johnson’s Baby Powder, from which the tested sample was taken.
Anyone with a bottle of Johnson’s Baby Powder identified as from lot #22318RB is advised to discontinue use of the product. For refund information, contact the Johnson & Johnson Consumer Care Center at www.johnsonsbaby.com or by calling +1 (866) 565-2229.
