One of the trends in childcare today is to use all natural and environmentally friendly baby and beauty products. The Honest Company, co-founded by celebrity Jessica Alba, is well known for producing non-toxic daily essential goods that promote wellness towards children and families. Everything from diapers to sunscreen can be purchased through The Honest Company, so many families today make an effort to use only these products for their children.
Unfortunately, The Honest Company announced a voluntary recall of its organic baby powder last week. All products undergo regular testing to guarantee high quality and utmost safety to consumers. During one such testing of the organic baby powder, possible contamination was detected. Microorganism species linked to eye and skin infections were found in some batches of the baby powder. While no official reports are known in relation to this issue, The Honest Company voluntarily chose to recall to product just to be cautious. The company consulted with the FDA, who agreed that the powder warrants a recall.
The Honest Company organic baby powder containers affected by this recall were promoted to be a natural dusting product with probiotics. It is sold throughout the United States in 4-ounce containers with a UPC code of 817810014529. Fortunately, no other The Honest Company products are said to have been included in this recall.
If you’ve purchased baby powder from The Honest Company and it matches this description, cease use immediately. Buyers have been offered a full refund and are asked to call 1-888-688-8653 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “Baby Powder” for questions or refunds.
Promoting better health and supporting products that are eco-friendly is fantastic, but it is important to understand these products can be affected just like the alternatives.
