This morning, W.S. Badger Co. announced a voluntary recall on four-ounce tubes of SPF 30 Kids Sunscreen Lotion due to a microbial contamination. Early testing on the baby sunscreen revealed Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Candida parapsilosis and Acremonium fungi but the company said no “adverse reactions” have been reported.

In a statement released by Billy Whyte, CEO of W.S. Badger Co., he said, “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.”
