Johnson & Johnson voluntarily recalling single lot of Baby Powder in U.S.
Johnson & Johnson Consumer is initiating a voluntary recall in the U.S. of a single lot of its Johnson's Baby Powder in response to an FDA test indicating the presence of sub-trace levels of chrysotile asbestos contamination, no greater than 0.00002%, in samples from a single bottle purchased from an online retailer. JJCI is initiating this voluntary recall of Lot #22318RB of Johnson's Baby Powder, from which the tested sample was taken. In parallel, JJCI has initiated an investigation and is working with the FDA to determine the integrity of the tested sample, and the validity of the test results. At this stage of the investigation, JJCI cannot confirm if cross-contamination of the sample caused a false positive, whether the sample was taken from a bottle with an intact seal or whether the sample was prepared in a controlled environment, or whether the tested product is authentic or counterfeit.
