NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. — Johnson & Johnson Consumer Cos. last week voluntarily recalled from retailers one lot of Aveeno Baby Calming Comfort lotion that was distributed in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee and Texas.
This is not a consumer level recall and no action is required by consumers, the company stated.
This recall is being initiated as a precautionary measure after testing of a product sample by the Food and Drug Administration indicated that the lot exceeded the specifications for common bacteria.
J&J 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 remain available.
The lot number (0161LK) and UPC code (38137-0036456) for the recalled product is embossed on the tube.
