Recalled Product Description: Johnson’s Baby Powder
The current recall includes one lot of 33,000 bottles of baby powder. The specific lot number for this product is Lot #22318RB.
Why the Baby Powder Was Recalled
JJCI initiated the recall after U.S. Food and Drug Administration testing found the presence of sub-trace levels of chrysotile asbestos contamination (no greater than 0.00002%) in the powder. The asbestos was only found in one bottle of powder and was purchased from an online retailer.
According to a press statement, JJCI, “Cannot confirm if cross-contamination of the sample caused a false positive. Cannot confirm whether the sample was taken from a bottle with an intact seal or whether the sample was prepared in a controlled environment. Cannot confirm whether the tested product is authentic or counterfeit.”
