Badger Sunscreen Recall Issued Due to Microbial Contamination

A recall has been issued for Badger Kids and Baby suncreen lotion after random sample testing confirmed the presence of multiple microbial contaminates, posing a potential risk of skin infection and sepsis for young children.  

The Baby Badger suncreen recall was announced by the FDA on September 23, after at least three different kinds of bacteria were discovered.

Although no illnesses or injuries have been reported to date, the bacteria identified are commonly known to cause severe inflammation and infection of the skin.
