The recall involves Dr. Brown’s Natural Bottle & Dish Soap, which was sold individually or along with Dr. Brown’s bottle-brush cleaning kit.
No incidents have been reported, but the manufacturer warns about the risk of infections:
The bottle and dish soap can contain harmful bacteria. Exposure to bacteria poses a risk of respiratory and other infections in immunocompromised individuals.”
If the recalled soap was used on any baby-bottles or dishes, they should be boiled and sanitized in the dishwasher.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled dish-and-bottle soap and contact Dr. Brown’s for information on how to receive a replacement or comparable merchandise of equal or lesser value.
The soap came in two sizes — a 16-oz bottle with a pump and a 4-oz squeezer bottle. A label on the front of the bottles reads “Dr. Brown’s Natural Bottle & Dish Soap” and “100% Plant-Based Ingredients.”
The products were sold at 4 Our Little Ones, Babies R’ Us, Bebeang, Buy Buy Baby, Drugland Pharmacy, Family First Pharmacy, Global Nutrition Trading, Macro and Turquoise stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com from September 2016 to June 2017 for $3-$7.
