Johnson & Johnson has voluntarily recalled some of their baby powder products due to the finding of asbestos in some of their products.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) found the chrysotile fibers, a type of asbestos, during the testing of a sample of Baby Powder Lot #22318RB. As a result, and as an abundance of caution, Johnson & Johnson voluntarily recalled the products. Consumers who have that particular lot of baby powder should stop using it immediately.
“The results from the Johnson & Johnson sample are part of our ongoing survey of cosmetic products for asbestos,” FDA officials said in a statement. “This survey started in 2018 and involves the testing of about 50 cosmetic products. As part of the same survey of cosmetic products, Johnson’s Baby Powder sample from a different lot tested negative for asbestos. That sample came from Lot #00918RA.”
A statement provided by Johnson & Johnson said:
If you or someone you provide care for owns a bottle of Johnson’s Baby Powder Lot #22318RB, you are advised to discontinue use of the product. For refund information, contact the Johnson & Johnson Consumer Care Center at www.johnsonsbaby.com or by calling +1 (866) 565-2229.
