For Immediate Release
September 1, 2016
Norway, Iowa - Frontier Co-op is initiating a voluntary recall for the following Aura Cacia Milk & Oat Bath products. Recalled products were sold online and in stores in all 50 states and in some parts of Canada to distributors, retailers and consumers.
This voluntary recall is the result of FDA testing that revealed an elevated microorganism count in Aura Cacia Lavender Milk & Oat Bath. While cosmetic products are not required to be sterile, an elevated microorganism count indicates that the product could pose a hazard to health. To date, no illnesses have been associated with these products.
