Baby Powder Recalled
With what the company is calling “an abundance of caution,” Johnson & Johnson announced on Friday that they would be instituting a voluntary recall of its baby powder over concerns that the product could possibly contain asbestos.
According to Fox News, the recall will affect a single lot of the baby powder.
Testing by the Food and Drug Administration found that asbestos had contaminated a bottle of Johnson's Baby Powder that had been bought from a retail outlet online. It's important to note here that it was one single bottle that was found to be contaminated and the manufacturer maintains that the level of contamination of the product was extremely small.
Company officials say that this is the very first time that Johnson's Baby Powder has been recalled and taken out of the marketplace.
