AVEENO® BABY CALMING COMFORT® LOTION
1-877-298-2525 (available Monday-Friday 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Eastern Time)
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – January 27, 2012 – Johnson & Johnson Consumer Companies, Inc. is voluntarily recalling from retailers one lot of AVEENO® BABY CALMING COMFORT® LOTION (full product details below) 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.
This recall is being initiated as a precautionary measure after testing of a product sample by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). That test indicated that the lot exceeded the specifications for common bacteria, though extensive testing by an independent laboratory afterward did not show that specifications were exceeded. However, Johnson & Johnson Consumer Companies, Inc. 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.
This recall is being conducted with the knowledge of the FDA.
Consumers who would like a refund or coupon, or who have questions or concerns about the recalled product, should call our Consumer Call Center at 1-877-298-2525 (available Monday-Friday 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Eastern Time).
The lot number and UPC code for the recalled product is embossed on the tube.
